  • As long as baby isn't latched on while you're doing so, go for it! The only reason you couldn't while pregnant was because of the harmful fumes. Congrats btw!

  • any type of bleach that sits on your scalp for a long time could possible soak into your head & come thru your breastmilk but it would be so minimal it really wouldn't make any difference. make sure you do it in a well ventilated area so baby isn't smelling the fumes, wear gloves & wash off your hands & arms w/ soap when you're done. Better even still if you just go to the salon while some body watches the little one, take some time to pamper yourself mamma!!!

  • I like the answer about not doing it while the baby is latched on! It's safe. I got a perm once and my baby didn't like how I looked after.

  • It's completely safe.
