  • I would think soon as you have your babe your practically bleeding to death and givin your babe to suck on the boob. It's not harmful so no worries girl.

  • Yes. In fact, it's important for your supply that you do.

    Only things that would stop you from nursing: being stone dead drunk (or just stoned), radiation therapy, chemotherapy, thoracic surgery.
