Ok, quick question. Can I five blood while BFing? I know I would need to drink extra fluids to replace what I will lose. But is it safe? Is it allowed? TIA!

I've given blood twice now while bf'ing - so, it's perfectly okay! Just up your fluids and eat really well that day.

Yup, just has to be >6 weeks after delivery. And no blood transfusions in the last 12 months.
