    Question is it safe to use beano while BF?

    So weird question, but is it safe to take beano while BF? I am trying to get back to eating less meat and more beans and well you know the issue there...

    DD gets really gassy too when I eat beans, although she doesn't seem upset about it. I wonder if taking beano would help us both out?

    I am super cautious taking anything!!

    This is the response on the beano site:

    There is no information to indicate that Beano is unsafe for use during pregnancy or while breast-feeding. However, Beano has not been tested on pregnant women and therefore, we recommend that pregnant or breast-feeding women should speak to their physician before using Beano.

    according to "Nonprescription Drugs for the Breastfeeding Mother," Beano is considered "usually safe for breastfeeding" and classified as a L1.
