I'm Gillian McKeithing my body just abit at the moment. Just wondered if anyone out there had taken any superfood supplements whilst bfing? I asked at holland and Barratt but they couldn't advise and recommended talking to the doctor. DC2 is 6 months.

theres nothing untoward in blue green algae. lots and lots of nutrients that will benefit your baby though. my XP also a herbalist took a concoction of blue green algae in powder form and liquid flax oil every day, and my little boy is super duper intelligent grin

blue green algae will have plenty of b vits too, so if your or your childs wee turns bright orange, DO NOT WORRY, it is the excess B12 the body is not using and is getting rid of!!

klamath blue green algae is the best, but spirulina etc are good too.
