Is it safe to detox while breastfeeding?

Is it safe to detox while breastfeeding?

Does this mean formula is the answer?

Of course not. “This is just another way to scare mothers out of breastfeeding,” says Dr. Newman. “The toxins are present in formula too. Formula contains pesticides and heavy metals, including lead, for example, in quantities much higher than breast milk.”

One of the benefits of breastfeeding over formula is that breast milk helps protect your baby from the toxic effects of pollutants. While you can’t eliminate toxins from your baby’s diet, you can help them deal with the pollutants more effectively by providing breast milk.
