Dear all, Does the food a breastfeeding eat affect the child..for example if a bf mom eats spicy food ..will it affect the child..my son is pooping differently ..like little greenish with yellow granules for the past two days ..and he is completely on breastfeed..my mom says i might had something which caused this..please advise..

Sonika Singh

hi Divya....yes it affects the child...so take care what you eat...

Dr. Payal M

it doesnt affect the baby in the literal sense..spicy food fr mum doesnt mean baby gets spicy milk. but yes since the baby is getting only yourmilk, what you eat will have an impact. yellowish green granules are normal for bf babies. take care of your diet and eat easy to digest stuff. avoid fermented foods.

Thats right..Spicy food doesn't effect milk..however, u should preferably eat healthy nutritious food so baby gets the best
