Is it safe? I'm not finding much online to support its safety while breastfeeding, but I know many of you do take it. What's the verdict? My ND is out of town, so I can't ask him. If you take it while breastfeeding, what makes you feel comfortable doing so?
Thanks.

It's totally safe in breastfeeding. In fact, one of the natural regimens that Dr. Jack Newman recommends for getting rid of thrush/candida during breastfeeding includes both oral and topical GSE on the breasts.

This is where I hide my head in embarassment and admit that, though I thought something was just a bit off, I was looking up *grape* seed extract instead of grapefruit seed extract. Ahem.
Thanks for the link, which finally solidified that nagging feeling that I had something a bit twisted around in my mind! :
