Anyone know?

How long does it take for what you eat to go to your breastmilk? I want to try cutting out certain foods to see if it helps with DS gas problems since he seems to have a hard time pushing it out.

  • I don't think it even takes a day! And it would be out of your system within 24 hours easily. I have eaten a ton of garlic and before the day is over, my breastmilk smells garlicky!
