Lipozene and Breastfeeding: An Overview
It is not known if Lipozene
™ is safe for use in breastfeeding women. Because there may be potential unknown risks from using Lipozene during breastfeeding, you should check with your healthcare provider before taking the weight loss supplement if you are nursing a child. In fact, the manufacturer states that breastfeeding women should not take Lipozene.
Lipozene and Breastfeeding: What Does the Research Say?
No research has been done to see if Lipozene passes through breast milk. However, it is unlikely to pass through, since Lipozene is a fiber that is not absorbed from the digestive tract into the rest of the body. Since it stays in the digestive tract, it probably cannot pass through breast milk.
There is some evidence that Lipozene can help people lose weight. However, breastfeeding is a time of increased caloric need for women -- it is not the best time to be dieting. A healthy and balanced diet is recommended during this time, not a low-calorie diet (which might result from taking Lipozene).

After considering what you want and expect, as well as your current health situation, the two of you can make a shared decision about Lipozene and breastfeeding that is right for you.
