I used to take Bilberry before becoming pregnant, when I pretty much gave up all the supplements I was taking except preg-related ones.  Now that I've been off everything for almost 3 yrs and still BF, my vision is soooo going to the dogs!  It is very likely just age-related, though I know it could be a bit preg-related too.

 

Anyway I'd like to start taking Bilberry again to see if it helps my vision, anyone know if it's ok to take while still BF?

 

Thanks!

According to the Nursing Mother's Herbal (Shelia Humphrey, BSc, RN, IBCLC; 2003), bilberry fruit is a safety rating "A", which means no contraindications have been IDed & it's generally considered safe when used appropriately.  The leaves are a "C" due to insufficient data.

 

Hope it helps!
