I bought a bottle of this, and then was disappointed to read on the label "Do not use while pregnant or nursing." So I didn't. But, I'm wondering which of the ingredients raise the red flag? What do you think? I'll paste the bottle info below. My nursling is 17 months right now.

I am not aware of one of those particular ingredients being an issue, but generally, detoxing while nursing is not recommended as it can dump toxins into your milk and be harsh for your baby (both in causing die off for her, and possibly lessening the nutritional quality of your milk during that time). That said, I personally am ok with SLOW and gentle cleansing or detoxing or killing yeast. It's usually better all around anyway depending on what it is you're cleansing.
If you really need to do a yeast kill, you could also look into enzymes that will alleviate die off and you'll both benefit. It would also be a good idea to take a quality probiotic (but ease into that too) to support both of you and aid in adding good bacteria.
Here's some info about herbs while nursing and you could check the supplement info with what is listed here. http://kellymom.com/herbal/herbs_to_avoid.html
