-When you drink coffee (or soda or tea), some of the caffeine ends up in your breast milk. Because babies aren't able to excrete caffeine as quickly or efficiently as adults, too much in their systems may lead to irritation, crankiness, and sleeplessness.

-Certain compounds found in citrus fruits and juices may irritate a still-immature GI tract, leading to fussiness, spitting up, and even diaper rash in some babies.

-Lactation consultants may tell you that it's just an old wives' tale that eating broccoli, cauliflower, and other "gassy vegetables" leads to irritable, gassy babies.
