January 8, 2010, Newsletter Issue #147: Herbal Supplements and Medications

Tip of the Week

If you are still nursing, it is important that you not begin to take new medications or herbal remedies without first discussing the ingredients and effects with your lactation specialist or OBGYN, or pediatrician. The myth exists that if something is natural, it will be fine. Taking herbal supplements to lose weight while nursing, for example, can be very dangerous to the baby. Not all things natural belong in your milk. Poisons can be natural too. Treat natural remedies and herbs as medications and discuss taking them with a doctor before they go into your child through your milk.
