food, spicy, and breastfeeding

If spicy foods cause problems with breastfeeders... then how come the rest of the world that breastfeeds and eats spicy foods doesn't notice this problem? Eat what you like. If you think a food bothers your baby, first be sure the same effect happens consistently - at least three times in a baby who was doing great before you ate the food - before you blame the food. Even then, I'm going to be pretty skeptical.

This goes in spades for so-called "gassy foods," which admittedly may give the mother gas but cannot scientifically speaking cause gas in the baby (which is just swallowed air that didn't get burped up - period).
