Does food that I eat travel through breastmilk and to baby? My 2, 5months old has diarrhea, I changed my diet but he still has. No other signs
Food is broken down by your digestive system into energy units. When I hear this story I advise to stop drinking milk for two weeks to see if a change. Sometimes the protein from cow's milk can pass thru milk and irritate infant. Nicotine and caffeine are the other things to drop. Breast fed babies normal have small squirty yellow stool with chunks with is miscalled as diarrhea a lot.

For occasional contipation, try a teaspoon of epsom salts in a glass of water. Avoid laxitives. ...Read more
