What Is Safe To Use On Stretch Marks While Nursing
Possibly OK: Most substances taken by nursing mothers are safe because only about 2-5% of most medications enter breastmilk. Given that the itworks wrap is a topical treatment, it is probably fine. However, I am unable to see exactly what is in the wrap.

Check ingredients on: label. If you can't identify it or pronounce it, you are best using an organically formulated brand. Usually GNC products are not organic & tend to use the cheapest industry standards in their formulations. So, looking on their label will identify what's in it, and you can compare the ingredients to whats on "Skin Deep" in the EWG.org website that will help you determine it's safety. 0, 1 is best. ...Read more

You live in California and that should be easy to obtain without supplements all year round. You could speak to a nutritionist for more detailed guidance if need be. ...Read more

Colloidal silver: Two natural treatments I know of are Colloidal silver and grapefruit seed extract, most other treatments are too strong and could harm the fetus.

Legal, all natural no tobacco smoke blend, is it ok to use during the year of nursing my baby if i wait an hour afterwards?
No idea: So what exactly is it? Banana peel? Leather out an old buick? There are lots of things that are "all natural" like belladonna and arsenic that i wouldn't wan to ingest. I would get this product investigated throughly with your doc to see, and let them consult with a toxicologist. Waiting an hour makes no difference. If there is an offending agent, they recommend pump and dumping for at least a day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
