My gynae recommends taking vitamins & fish oil for as long as I'm breastfeeding, as they can get transferred to the milk. Plus my body will use up a lot of calcium to produce milk so if I don't take supplement it might be bad for my bones.


I took prenatal fish oil and multi vit. Calcium I got it from gnc. My nurse mention its better to take supplements during bfing especially fish oil with dha.

Hey, Yes, better to continue taking supplements for couple of months after giving birth

It’s better to take! Good for mummies to replenish nutrients from breastfeeding.
