    Default okay while breastfeeding??

    Is it okay to use hair color/bleach for highlighting your hair while breastfeeding? I just want to make sure these chemicals wouldn't get absorbed into the milk.

    Also, concerning possible chemical absorption....are all kinds of sunscreens safe to use? Okay to apply directly to breast/chest area?

    Thanks a lot!

    I've used them without problem, just as I used them during pregnancy without problem. My doctor said during BFing it is fine, and even fine during pregnancy but said to wait past the first trimester just to be extra safe.
