Thread: Cranberry Pills?

  1. #1

    Default Cranberry Pills?

    Is it safe to take cranberry pills while BF'ing? I got UTI's constantly before I got pregnant, they went away during my pregnancy which was wonderful. But, now they're coming back. DD is 12 weeks and I have already had 1 and feel another one coming on today. Cranberry pills saved my life before. They really worked wonders for me so I would love to start taking them daily again. Just want to make sure it is safe!

    what did your baby's pediatrician say about taking these pills? Did you check infantrisk.com? does the label say they are safe for breastfeeding mom?

    I think it might be one of those "unknown" things.

    Special precautions & warnings:
    Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Cranberries and cranberry juice are safe to consume during pregnancy and breast-feeding. But don't use dietary supplements that contain cranberry products. It is not known if these are safe to use during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
    I think you should check with your doctor and see what s/he thinks.
