    Default Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy & Breastfeeding

    Is anyone else using Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy and breastfeeding? I want to know if anyone has heard if it's safe or unsafe?

    Hi! I didn't know it was contraindicated, but I used it for about 3 months very successfully - my stretch marks, which were pretty bad, are pretty much gone now! And we had no side effects with nursing. Why was it contraindicated?

    I called the company to ask them if it was safe, and they didn't have an answer. They said they did not run tests/trials for breastfeeding or pregnancy. But I have been using now for almost a month and there is a HUGE improvement! I am just worried that something that is working so well, could be dangerous to my daughter. She will be 3 months old this week.

    i did some googling, mederma is safe according to some reasearch, others are NOT RECOMENDED

    ask the doctors maybe?
