In brief: Well....

Let's discuss two types of influence here, direct and indirect.
In terms of direct influence to breast milk and baby from sunbathing, no there are no concerns. However, there is an indirect effect on baby of your sunbathing. You may not be around in the future to care for her if you get malignant melanoma or other deadly skin cancers! Congrats on doing a great job breastfeeding your baby!
