Our expert says:
While you are breastfeeding your son you should not take any tablets, including herbal ones and certainly not slimming pills as most of these chemicals are excreted in breast milk and can affect your baby. I am opposed to the use of slimming pills that contain ephedrine, pseudo-epinephrine or synephrine, because these components can be potentially harmful. So check on the labels of these pills to see if they contain these ingredients. These components can cause a long list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions, etc). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Rather use the low-fat high-fibre diet and plenty of regular exercise to lose your weight without harming your health or that of your son.
