According to my reading, there are only a few minerals that pass through to the milk in proportion to how much mom takes (selenium, iodine, and magnesium come to mind). Zinc is usually kept pretty steady in the milk unless mom is pretty deficient. Is that 22-33mg in addition to a multi/prenatal? A multi/prenatal may have that much on its own, so if you're not taking one, then it would clearly be fine (IMO). I was deficient and took more than you're proposing, so IMO if you think it's helping with colds, then taking it seems reasonable.
