<p>I used to take Bilberry before becoming pregnant, when I pretty much gave up all the supplements I was taking except preg-related ones.  Now that I've been off everything for almost 3 yrs and still BF, my vision is soooo going to the dogs!  It is very likely just age-related, though I know it could be a bit preg-related too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway I'd like to start taking Bilberry again to see if it helps my vision, anyone know if it's ok to take while still BF?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>According to the Nursing Mother's Herbal (Shelia Humphrey, BSc, RN, IBCLC; 2003), bilberry fruit is a safety rating "A", which means no contraindications have been IDed & it's generally considered safe when used appropriately.  The leaves are a "C" due to insufficient data.</p>

<p>Hope it helps!</p>
