 Have been ebf dd, she is 7and a half months old - am taking prenatals, fish oil and calcium/vit D. But, my hair is falling out - a bunch and my nails are peeling and cracking! This all started about 3 months ago. Thought maybe since she was eating more I wasn't getting enough nutrients? Anyway, a friend recommended biotin. Websites say its fine while bf'ing but would like your opinion?

A good prenatal made from whole foods worked for me!

Biotin should be fine as long as you get the natural supplements.
