I suffered some pretty severe joint trauma during a recent injury. Fortunately my recovery has gone exceptionally well, and I've gotten back to a pretty highly active lifestyle. However I do have varying degrees pain throughout the day. I'd like to try glucosamine/chondroitin in addition to my exercises to see if it helps improve joint function and pain, but there doesn't appear to be any available data on the safety of either glucosamine or chondroitin sulfate during breastfeeding.
I'm curious to know if anyone here knows anything about glucosamine/chondroitin or has taken it while breastfeeding. I would like to continue nursing my now 16 month old for as long as he wants to nurse, but I would also like to explore all possible avenues for improving my joint function so that I can continue to do all of the activities my little guy and I like to do throughout the day.
