Been feeling a bit run down so bought some Berocca for a pick me up.

I am EBF my 5 mo.

Just occurred to me that I didn't think about whether it's ok to take when BF!

As far as I can see it's only vitamins so think ok... What do you think?

Never ever heard of you not being able to take vitamins when bfing.

If you are feeling run down have you tried some early night? Have you got someone who could take Lo out for an hour or two today and tomorrow so that you can get one rest?

The Berocca website says

Can I use Berocca whilst breastfeeding?

Absolutely. The vitamins and minerals in Berocca are excreted into breast milk, but it’s unlikely your child will experience any harmful effects if you’re taking the recommended dose of one tablet a day. If you have any concerns, please discuss them with your doctor or midwife.

Just make sure you aren't taking any other vitamin supplements at the same time and it should be fine.

Thanks. Doh! Didn't think to look online!

Am off out for the day with LO to meet a friend which is actually a break as baby is very good and I'll be leaving DD1 at home with DH, so just having one will be easier smile
