I'm breastfeeding and want to take some supplements to help with a few things...who can I ask to make sure they are safe for BF? My pharmacist would know about vitamins and such...but if you ask about anything made from plants or something he seems to look puzzled. Doctors aren't much better. How can I find an herbalist or something? And will they answer those questions without having dealt with me before?Answer Question

There is a lot of info on this at Herbs and Breastfeeding
this is part of Is This Safe When Breastfeeding? at kellymom.com that has tons of good info. Pharmacists and Doctors often have very little info on medications and breastmilk and will often tell you it is not safe when it really is, simply becuase they don't know.
You can also do a search for things at LactNet
