In brief: Possibly

Agree with dr. Poinsett that this herb is generally recognized as safe .
. . Yet we have no information that definitely establishes its safety in breastfeeding. Are you looking for safe ways to help you produce breast milk? Mother's milk tea by traditional medicinals may work & be safer. Here's a helpful article describing additional, behavioral steps to take also: http://tinyurl.Com/k6b2gf2.

3 doctors agree

In brief: Yes it is

Per the national libary of medicine database- lactmed- it is generally recognized as safe by the fda.
Some believe it is a galactogue (increases breast milk production) but there are no clinical trials to support this. More on breastfeeding and medications http://breastfeedingonline.Com/meds.Shtml#sthash.Lbsbjbme.Dpbs.

In brief: Should be OK

The traditional medicine doesn't have an official information regarding safety of the dandelion root tea while breastfeeding.
Check with naturopathic or alternative medicine doctor.
