Should be: Always best to discuss with the pediatrician their recommendations for breast feeding issues , There does not appear to be anything negative , but you should also be eating plenty of healthy fats, healthy protein and lots of green leafy vegetables the shake would not be a sufficient diet on its own for breast feeding. I applaud your breast feeding !!!
