morning, my son is 3 months old. now the chapter continues sometimes 4-5x a day, continues to go to the doctor and the doctor advises his mother not to eat spicy food. but other doctors can eat spicy. My question is, is it okay for mothers who are breastfeeding to eat spicy and gassy foods? does it have any effect on the baby?

Hello abdul85, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com

Until now, there are many prohibitions that are often given to women who are breastfeeding. Eating spicy foods and foods that can cause gas such as cabbage or broccoli are some of them. Although many people make this prohibition, research shows that eating spicy or gas-producing foods will not make your baby diarrhea or fussy. Mothers who are breastfeeding are actually advised to eat various types of food because different types of food will provide variations in the taste of breast milk, which will help the transition when it is time for the baby to eat complementary foods. Eating spicy foods will not make breast milk spicy and the gas produced by gaseous foods will not be passed through breast milk. Therefore, eating spicy foods or foods that cause gas can still be continued.

Distinguishing normal bowel movements and diarrhea in infants is indeed quite difficult to do, because the consistency is both soft/watery and the frequency is equally high. CHAPTER 4-5 times per day may be normal for babies who are breastfed. To identify whether your baby has diarrhea or not, you can pay attention to the following symptoms:

there is a fever, decreased appetite for milk, nausea, and vomiting, there are signs of dehydration, weight loss occurs

If you do not experience these other symptoms, most likely what is experienced by your child is normal and there is nothing to worry about. If your child has these symptoms, you can take your child to a pediatrician for further examination and management.

That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
