Dear Cammy
Nutrients that you ingest from supplements may well pass into your breastmilk, so it may be a good idea to only take a supplement like Supradyn Forte or Centrum every 2nd day, to prevent overdosing your daughter with nutrients like vitamin A that is stored in the body. Although we always refer to these supplements as "vitamin supplements" they also contain a whole range of minerals, which may be present at levels that exceed your daughter's requirements at the moment.
Best regards
