  • Bad for your health, no impact on milk.

    Yeah, I'm death on tanning. Lost a colleague to melanoma, and she was too young to die. The melanoma rates for young women have risen so high that there's a movement to ban the beds.

    Spray tans are safer...and fine for nursing too. Just wipe your nipples.
