  • I haven't heard anything bad. I even mentioned to my doctor that I drink a shake every now and then and he didn't seemed concerned. If anything you are just getting more vitamins and protein which well help with milk production.

  • If your baby has a milk allergy then maybe. But otherwise no. Its not the best protein source for weight management or digestive function. Hemp protein is better. Soy protein is the worst. if you are prone to constipation or acne, I would stay away from dairy based proteins

  • As long as baby has no issues with dairy, completely safe.
