    Default anyone donate blood while nursing?

    So I'm debating if I should donate blood or not. The red cross allows it. I'm just wondering if anyone has donated and had a significant drop in milk supply? Or donated with no issues? Any thoughts much appreciated!

    I did it, though if I remember right it was when my daughter as over one. I think you'll be fine if you drink plenty of water (which you should do anyway after giving blood).
