Hi

I was wondering if it is ok to take either lactulose or fybogel (preferably the latter) while breast feeding?  The combination of iron tablets and an a healing episiotomy is not proving much fun  :-[

Thanks!

Hi

yes you can but I suggest that you look into getting some spatone rather than the iron tablets asap. It is a liquid form of iron that is more easily absorbed by the body, without any side effects. You can buy it from your local health food shop.

Take care x

Thanks Oink  :)

I do actually have spatone at home as I was taking it before the birth, I haven't gone back to taking it though as I have been unsure that it would provide enough iron.  I lost 1400mls blood during labour and my iron levels dropped to 76, I am on 200mg ferrous sulphate 3 times daily.  Would I be getting enough iron taking the spatone? 

Thanks again!
