    Yes - you can eat sushi while bf (the concern while pg is possible ick in raw fish).

    Yes - you should still be very concerned with mercury levels while eating any fish (raw or cooked) and bf.

    For example - I limit the amount of tuna that I eat (sushi or cooked) and eat other lower-mercury fishes instead.
