Can I take hairfinity vitamins while breast feeding my 10 month old baby?

Overall the opinion: is No you do not need to be taking Hair vitamins while you are lactating, though any harmful effects on the baby is not immediately known. It IS known that any vitamins you take while breastfeeding WILL be transferred to the baby, especially the fat soluble ones (ADEK). Most women grow hair faster while they are pregnant or lactating anyway as part of the natural effects of progesterone. ...Read more

Can I take a hair vitamin while I'm still on prenatal vitamins and also breast-feeding.

Can I take a hair vitamin while I'm still on prenatal vitamins and also breast-feeding.

Should be okay: .. as long as it is a naturally occurring vitamin that would normally exist in the body. If it is artificial, even without knowledge of the exact substance, I would recommend against putting in your body while you are breast-feeding your child. Just know that whatever you are trying to do to help yourself with these vitamins may very well end up working on the infant as well. ...Read more

Should u stay on a prenatal vitamin while breast feeding? Is it necessary?

Depends on you: The breast will prepare milk for baby by extracting nutrients from you, your bones/diet/etc. The prenatal vitamins actually protect you more than they do baby. If you want to be stooped over with osteoporosis in your golden years because of calcium & nutrient loss through breast feeding, skip them. Great grandma would have liked to avoid it if she could, you have a chance to. ...Read more
