I think I can answer this question.

I decided to go raw, myself, when I was still breastfeeding Kyle. I consulted with vegan dieticians and experts in the raw food area. I was told that since I was already vegan, there would be very little toxins passed on through the milk, but it was suggested I wait until Kyle was at least 6 months old before I did it. I actually waited until he was more like 8 months old. They basically explained that if the baby is getting more than 50% of it's food from BM, not to do it. But after the baby was getting 50% of his food from solids, it would be okay.

However, if a person were eating meat or dairy and wanted to go raw, the toxins flowing through the breastmilk would probably be too high, and that person should wait until the baby was weaned.
