borage oil safe while breastfeeding?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have an Omega 3-6-9 supplement that contains borage oil, flaxseed oil, and fish oil (400 mg of each per capsule.) i have seen several places online say not to use borage while breastfeeding or pregnant, and other sources say it is fine, and is even a galactogogue.

is this amount of borage safe while nursing?

There are varying opinions about whether or not it's ok during pregnancy. There have been studies where infants have been supplemented with borage directly & nothing to indicate danger was noted so I can't see how you taking it would be a problem.

I've given borage oil directly to my little one and there's never been a problem.
