Is it safe to take 60 mg vitamin B6 for luteal phase defect while you are breastfeeding?

In brief: Yes

Your question is a little confusing.
That dose of vit b6 is safe for breastfeeding and for you, but are you having regular monthly periods despite breastfeeding? Because many women will suppress normal, predictable ovulation while breastfeeding (not all), but if your menses are irregular during breastfeeding it likely means unpredictable ovulation (if ovulating at all).
