I agree with kelllymom.com being a good resourse but I don't think you are going to find an answer. What you eat doesn't really go to your milk in that way. You digestive system is not connected to your breasts. The milk is made in the milk glands. They are modified sweat glands and aren't even connected to the blood system. It's actually rare for a baby to have problems with things from a mother's diet, that's why women can eat anything while breastfeeding. Your baby is probably fussy for other reasons.
Drugs like caffeine are different. Some drugs can get in the milk in small amounts. There are only a few drugs moms can't take and breastfeed.
