The Relationship Between Breastfeeding Mothers Eating Crackers With A 2 Month Old Baby Coughing?

Hello Tuty, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Cough in a 2 month old baby can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Cold and dry air
The common cold (common cold) or viral infection (Rhinovirus) in the baby's upper respiratory tract
Pertussis or whooping cough
Foreign body in the baby's airway
Mothers who eat crackers and fried foods while breastfeeding will not cause babies who drink breast milk to cough. However, if your baby's cough seems severe, especially if it is accompanied by fever, shortness of breath, or certain sounds when the baby breathes (groaking or wheezing), you should immediately take your baby to the pediatrician. The condition of coughing in small babies cannot be underestimated and should be examined directly to ensure that there is no severe infection that can be dangerous for the baby.
Meanwhile you can continue to breastfeed your baby as usual. Do not give certain medicines to a 2 month old baby except on instructions from your doctor.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
