Can you take Kalms while breastfeeding?

(7 Posts)

The pack says not to, but then it would, wouldn't it?

Does anyone know if it is actually safe?

They're herbal so I thought that would be alright.

Herbs are effective because they contain powerful chemicals, which is why herbal medicine is effective. They are "natural" but not at all necessarily safer than conventional medicines.
I do not know about Kalms specifically; may be worthwhile getting advice from a trained herbalist smile. A MNetter maybe?

Thanks mummyfor3

I did a google search and found that someone on the <cough> babyworld forum had contacted the BFN drugline - they advised her that it was safe to take, though she may find her baby slightly sleepier.

I am going to take it, I only want to use it for 24 hours - driving test...
