Yes, eating sushi from a reputable restaurant while you're breastfeeding is safe for your baby. Unlike during pregnancy, when there's a risk of bacteria or parasites in raw fish harming your fetus, there is little to no risk to your baby during breastfeeding. Whether cooked or raw, though, it's best to avoid eating fish with high levels of mercury, which can damage your baby's nervous system. The fish to avoid are shark, swordfish, king mackerel, and tilefish. And limit your intake of white or albacore tuna to no more than 6 ounces per week.Anonymous
