my son is 2 years old and nurses approximately 4 times within a 24 hour period. i know oil pulling is a detoxing method, but arent we always detoxing in some way? any thoughts on if this is safe for my son while im breastfeeding?

According to my mom's old motherhood book from the 70s, nope. Sorry mamas, it says no crash diets and no detoxes of any kind until baby is fully weaned. You could possibly harm your supply or leach toxins into your milk.
