Absolutely!: Yes, and i encourage it. Pnv's are pretty good. You can also get one with dha and iron in it (if you have any traces of iron deficiency). Other natural supplementation that you can use is magnesium , gaba, and l-theanine. These should also be safe if you are breast-feeding. I approve of your attempts to deal with the problem with natural means first. Good luck!
