Yes: There are some supplements for breastfeeding moms which are generally considered safe. Before deciding to use one, please consult a lactation specialist or your doctor. Remember to continue taking your prenatal vitamins and plenty of fluid. Your nutrition is very important now, just like during pregnancy, so follow a healthy diet.
