My husband and I are planning on doing a liver/gallbladder cleanse that would require us to drink epsom salt water Friday evening through Saturday morning. About 3 cups total. Is this safe while breastfeeding?

A LLLL told me that Hale says epsom salt is L1.

However, having done a cleanse like you describe as a no longer nursing mother, I wouldn't want to do it while making milk simply because of the dehydration factor. I would also be a bit wary of stirring up toxins unless I were facing surgery if I didn't attempt the cleanse.

It isn't really a good idea to do any sort of a cleanse while breastfeeding. It can release toxins into your milk.
