Thereof, can vitamins affect breast milk?
Most mineral supplements (e.g., iron, calcium, copper, chromium, zinc) taken by the mother do not affect breastmilk levels. Water soluble vitamin supplements (e.g., B vitamins, vitamin C) taken by the mother usually increase breastmilk levels.
Likewise, people ask, is Centrum safe for breastfeeding?
Centrum Prenatal +DHA provides both a specially formulated multivitamin with 23 essential vitamins and minerals including Folic Acid, Iron, Calcium and Vitamin D, and a small softgel with DHA and EPA, for all stages of pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
Can I take 1000mg of vitamin C while breastfeeding?
The recommended vitamin C intake in lactating women is 120 mg daily, and for infants aged 6 months or less is 40 mg daily.  High daily doses up to 1000 mg increase milk levels, but not enough to cause a health concern for the breastfed infant and is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding.
We typically recommend that moms wait to begin taking our breastfeeding supplements until around 5 days after they deliver their baby.
