Underactive Thyroid

Morning

I have had thyroid problems since the age of 19. First overactive, now underactive. I am pregnant now and am using 0.15mg eltroxin. My thyroid never stays at the same level. Would it be safe for me to breastfeed once my baby is born, even though on the eltroxin my thyroid still fluctuates?
