This is Dr. David

yes, this protein shake is safe if you are breast feeding.

you should bring it to your doctor at next visit as well

but I bet they will say it is fine.

are you starting to exercise and working on eating healthy after the birth of your baby?

Hi Dr. David,Thank you, ***** ***** am 4 wks post c-section so I am only walking daily with support of pushing a stroller and started a healthy eating program (21 Day Fix - 40% Carb 30% Protein 30% Fat 1800-2099 calories. Waiting until my 6 wk follow-up to do the exercises
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

that is good.

breast feeding will help you burn calories and help you loose weight as well.

walking daily is great

avoid smoking and caffeine and smoking.

best of luck to you and your baby.
