Is L carnintine safe to take while I am breast feeding ?

Is L carnintine safe to take while I am breast feeding ?

Probably safe: Levocarnitine and acetyl-l-carnitine (acetlycarnitine) are normal components of human milk that are required for fat metabolism. It appears unlikely that maternal levocarnitine supplements during nursing would be harmful to the infant, but until more data are available, it is probably best to avoid levocarnitine.

How to quit breast feeding ? Do I have to take medicine ?

How to quit breast feeding ? Do I have to take medicine ?

Maybe pain medicine: If a breastfeeding woman stops abruptly, she will still get engorged with milk. She may have to pump occasionally to relieve the discomfort, but cannot pump too often or she will keep making milk. She can take some tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for 2 or 3 days if needed to relieve pain. Quitting gradually (switching one feeding to formula, then 2 feedings, and then 3 feedings, etc...) is less painful. ...Read more

Is fenugreek completely safe to take while breast feeding? I need to increase my supply.

Is fenugreek completely safe to take while breast feeding? I need to increase my supply.

Probably: Fenugreek has been used for hundreds of years to increase milk supply. I have not been able to find any reports of harm from using fenugreek while lactating. Studies on its actual effectiveness, though, are equivocal. My opinion: it probably won't hurt, and it very well might help. I doubt people would have used it this long if it didn't help, at least some of the time. Give it a try. ...Read more
