Cylaris and Breastfeeding
Although there was one study published on Cylaris, breastfeeding women were not allowed to participate in the research. Therefore, it is not known if Cylaris passes through breast milk or if it would cause problems in a nursing infant. Cylaris contains caffeine and other stimulants, which have been shown to cause poor sleeping, irritability, and a decreased appetite in breastfed infants.

No research has been done on many of the active ingredients in Cylaris products to see if they pass through breast milk or if they would cause any problems in a breastfed infant. However, it is reasonable to assume that the stimulants in Cylaris could cause problems, such as poor sleeping, irritability, and decreased appetite, in a nursing infant due to the caffeine content.
Breastfeeding is typically a time of increased caloric intake and nutritional need for most women, not a time to be dieting. It is important to eat a well-balanced diet while breastfeeding.
