Not while breast feeding. And I would NEVER give liver oil- the liver is the garbage disposal of the body and holds all the metabolic wastes. Yes it cleans itself, but not 100%.
Avocado and flax oils are much safer snd healthier- great omegas, zero metals and aquatic pollutants.

Depends how old. Under 9 months or so I wouldn't give any supplements, breastfeeding is perfect. If there is sickness in the house, I would take extra supplements to pass through the milk but I wouldn't give them directly.
