Q&A: Echinacea While Breastfeeding?
There isn’t really any research on echinacea’s use in breastfeeding moms. It isn’t considered very toxic and is probably safe for many moms. However, it has been known to stimulate T-cell activity, so moms with autoimmune disorders should probably steer clear. Allergic reactions and asthma attacks have also been reported. To be safe, discuss any herbal supplements with a health care professional before beginning treatment.
