I took a sample of a nutritional cleanse that had cascara sagrada in it this morning. My daughter is 2. I quit breastfeeding a few months back but she is sick and I have gotten her to nap or sleep a few times by breastfeeding. Since I don't daily breastfeed any more I forgot I took the sample and let her breastfeed then remembered I took it. I think it is dangerous and definately not good for her. What should I do?Answer Question

You would have very little if any milk and you don't even know if the herb is dangerous or if it is excreted in milk.

Doctors aren't trained in breastfeeding. There are no references for this type of situation for the poision control center to follow. If you feel you must call someone then La Leche League would be the one to call.
