may or may not happen. what type of food u eat, its content present in the breast milk. usually baby is not affected by food which has eaten by mother but some times it can be happen. so if u notice that ur baby is uncomfortable after a particular food that u have eaten, avoid that food.
usually it is coincidence that baby is suffering from intestinal colic & blaim was given to food that eaten by mother. give burping to baby after every feed to prevent gase related problem. apply (assafoiteeda) heeng paste on abdomen of baby whenever a gaseous problem happen to baby.
