Lipo-6 and Breastfeeding

The potential risks of taking Lipo-6 when breastfeeding likely outweigh any alleged benefits. No studies have been conducted on Lipo-6 and breastfeeding, so it's not exactly clear what risks (if any) the supplement could pose to a woman and her nursing infant. If you decide to take it while breastfeeding, watch for decreased appetite, poor sleeping, and irritability in your child.

Is Lipo-6 Safe During Breastfeeding?

Lipo-6™ weight loss supplements may not be safe for women who are breastfeeding (or for anyone, for that matter). It contains a variety of different active ingredients, most of which have never been shown to be safe for use during breastfeeding. Lipo-6 is an herbal supplement and is not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is, therefore, not required to be either safe or effective.

Lipo-6 and Breastfeeding: What Does the Research Say?

No research has been done to see if Lipo-6 passes through breast milk or if it would cause any problems in a nursing infant. Breastfeeding is a time of increased caloric and nutritional need for most women, not a time to be dieting. It is important to eat a well-balanced diet while breastfeeding. Lipo-6 contains a few different stimulants (such as caffeine and synephrine), which may cause decreased appetite, poor sleeping, and irritability in breastfed infants.
Given the unknown risks of using Lipo-6 while breastfeeding and the lack of scientific evidence to suggest that it is effective, the risks of using Lipo-6 likely exceed any possible benefits, especially for breastfeeding women.

Talking With Your Healthcare Provider About Lipo-6 and Breastfeeding

You should talk with your healthcare provider about Lipo-6 and breastfeeding. Each woman's situation is different, and you and your healthcare provider understand your situation best. After considering what you want and expect, as well as your current health situation, the two of you can make a shared decision about Lipo-6 and breastfeeding that is right for you.
