I am thinking about taking milk thistle before my next pregnancy (we are not yet ttc but will be in about five months). I have read that it can help to reduce morning sickness because it helps to clean up and strengthen the liver. I am still nursing my 11.5 mo ds night and day, and am just wondering if anyone has any personal experience taking milk thistle while bf'ing. I also read that it can help to increase milk supply (not really needed for me, but a sign that it is likely safe). I have a list of herbs that are contraindicated while nursing and milk thistle isn't on it. I am a bit concerned that it might offer too strong of a detox (definitely not safe while nursing) or that it may adversely affect ds's liver. I have consulted books and web sites, but would like some personal accounts. Thanks!
