I took some and forgot to check first so before I feed my 4.5 week old I need to make sure it was okay. That was so silly of me but has any of you taken it while pregnant or bfing??

The majority of medications out there are safe when nursing. Such minute amounts of medication get into the breastmilk. You should be fine.

You should be just fine. My son has a bad constipation problem and the doctor told us when he was 3 weeks old to give it to him. We had to give it to him on a daily basis but have since tapered it off.
