Can I do a cleanse while breastfeeding?

My daughter is almost 20 months, and only nursing a couple of times a day. I was wanting to look into a cleansing program to jump start my diet. Does anyone know anything about cleansing while breastfeeding?

  • This question has been asked recently. NO do not do a cleanse while you are breastfeeding. All the toxins you are releasing will be dumped into your kidneys, liver, breastmilk and any other way your body has of dumping waste. Please consult a naturopath before doing one.

  • I would have to agree... If you fant to jump start a diiet go with prunes and LOTS of WATER!! That will pull some of the "Stuff" in you intestines out without effecting your milk.
