Yes, Maternal dose of Olanzapine upto 20mg daily produce low levels in milk and undetectable in the serum of breastfeed infants. In most cases short term side effects have not been reported, but sedation occurred.

Generally Olanzapine dose does not exceed more than 20mg daily. So it may be given to breast feed mother as the baby has negligible effect of the drug
Olanzapine is an antipsychotic drug. Low level are detected in breastmilk. Doses up-to 20 mg are safe. But higher doses will cause sedation.
Yes, the mother can breastfeed. Upto 20mg of Olanzapine is safe during breastfeeding.
As it is excreted in breast milk baby will be sedated and may gain undue weight
