Supplementing while breatfeeding (Vit B6)

Dear Doc

My daily multivitamin supplement contains 3.2mg of Vit B6 which is 160% of the RDA. Could this interfere with breastfeeding? Should I look for a supplement without any Vit B6 in it?

Many thanks

It is best to find a supplement which has no more than 2 mg of Vit B6.

While breastfeeding you should continue taking your pregnancy vitamins.
