I plan to breastfeed for few more weeks till my child turns one but ate some fish that might be high in mercury. Should i stop breastfeeding now?

In brief: It depends.

Breast feeding your child until the 1st birthday is in general good.
If i were you, i would call your state health department and ask this question. If the mercury level in fish is very high potentially to cause long term organ damage, then you should stop eating fish whether breast feeding or not.
