Colic: There are no particular foods that cause colic. If there were foods that gave you trouble during pregnancy- acidic foods, caffeine, spicy foods- you may want to avoid them in the first few months after the baby is born. If you eat a particular food and notice the baby is very fussy, you may want to avoid that one for a while until she is a bit older. Eat healthy foods and see how it goes.See 1 more doctor answer

Advice, what's good food/intake for breastfeeding. What's not good. (colic baby with food allergies)?
Unsettled: These issues are still unsettled. More evidence is pointing to no food avoidance even during pregnancy since lack of exposure to a specific food within the first 4 months of life appears to raise the risk to develop allergy. If baby is allergic, you will need to avoid that food if possible although it is unknown as to how much food does get into breast milk. Agree that probiotic may help.See 2 more doctor answers

Others pump and have other family members bottle feed. In all cases wash your hands! Hope you feel better soon.
Yes: That is a reasonable dose and one would not expect a great deal of transfer to milk at that level.
