Does anyone have any more info on this? I like tuna and have 5 cans or so, but am worried that if I would happen to eat too much that too much will get into my milk and dd would be consuming it.
Any thoughts? Anyone know how much would be too much?

I would think that if you follow the same guidelines for breastfeeding as for pregnancy your dc would probably be fine. I.e., one serving a week or less. And don't eat other potentially high-mercury fish like shark, swordfish, tilefish, or king mackerel.

I also found this online:
You should avoid eating shark, swordfish and marlin and limit the amount of tuna you eat. Don’t eat more than one tuna steak a week (weighing about 140g cooked or 170g raw) or two medium-size cans of tuna a week (with a drained weight of about 140g per can). For canned tuna, this means about six rounds of tuna sandwiches or three tuna salads.
