Safe in moderation: Congratulations! Chia is perfectly safe to take while nursing but if it is mixed with caffeinated tea use with moderation. It is considered safe to take up to 300 mg of caffeine a day while nursing (the amount in 3 cups of coffee or 6 cups of tea) but if you or your baby seem jittery or irritable reduce the amount.
