Does fake tanning effect nursing? POSTPARTUM!

I'm 2 weeks postpartum- can I tan at a salon without effecting my milk supply, or the health of my baby?

  • the only reason they tell you not to tan while you are pregnant is because of the heat and it makes your body temp rise which isn't good for the baby inutero. I don't see what the problem would be after you have given birth. I plan on tanning as soon as I can, I'm looking into buying a bed actually. So I would say go ahead.

  • Aside from the skin cancer risks, there's no risk to your milk or its supply.
