I appreciate your caution about taking herbs and considering our natural Colon Cleansing Kit
while you are breastfeeding. While there is no herb in the kit that is contraindicated during breastfeeding, I encourage you to stick with your excellent diet instead, adding increased water intake with a gentle gel-forming bulk laxative such as psyllium or flax seed.
We simply do not have enough research to say what effects many herbs may have on newborns. It is probably safe but let's be conservative: you can cleanse with foods, increased water, and the seeds mentioned above, all of which have known safety for the newborn who is breastfeeding. Thank you for your attention to this, and congratulations on your path to family health!
