That's what I thought, but was not sure.  Thanks for the Reply!

Those "studies" have been discredited. No need to worry about lavender and boys.

I am taking a natural supplement with a small amount of lavender in it to reduce anxiety, and it has been very effective.  The natural doc said it's safer than any pharm med.  Is it safe to be ingesting a small amount of lavender while breastfeeding a boy?  I've read some stuff on that lavender products can have estrogenic effects or cause breast buds in little boys.  Although this is controversial.  Some information says that those few studies are not accurate and that the cause of the breast development in those boys was due to some other form of endocrine disruption in their skin/bathing products.  I would hate to see my manly buff little guy turn feminine!!!

Any info would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks :).
