    Default Time from food to breast milk?

    How quickly does what you eat appear in your breast milk. So if you have a caffeinated drink, how much time does it take to affect your breast milk? Or if you eat something with garlic does it affect the taste?

    I'm just curious.

    i think that for things like caffeine and alcohol, it's almost instant. and foods -- my ped told me anywhere between 4-12 hours, depending on the food, your body/metabolism, and other variables.
