I was told that eating melon soup (egusi) will affect my 5weeks old baby. Please, I want to know if it's true.

A breastfeeding mom needs to eat a well nourishing balanced diet. She should only avoid foods and spices that make her baby fussy or show allergic reactions. So if Egusi makes your baby fussy or show allergic reaction, then avoid it but if it does not you can go ahead and have it.
The only thing she needs to clearly avoid is taking unprescribed medication.
