  • its safe as long as you are also getting the needed calories a day to sustain your health and keep producing breast milk, then its ok. im going on the assumption that these drinks are like slim fast. just the meal replacements....nothing medicated right?
    just keep eating healthy along with these drinks.

  • just don't overdo, diet coke has a lot of caffeine so 1 or 2 a day would be fine!

  • ooo haha ok my bad. what pp says is true. and now you just have you worry about yourself and the aspartame. its in diet sodas and not really good for you. i dont know for sure if that passes through bm or not. its worth the research i'd say.
