In brief: Yes
Used as an eye drop or a laxative this material is considered both in pregnancy and during breast feeding.
Its inert nature makes its likelihood of entering the system or the breast milk to be negligible.

In brief: Yes
This is a Cellulose gum material.
I assume you are using it for dry eyes. It is safe.
