Breastfeeding is a huge part of becoming a new mom. It’s beautiful, bonding journey that allows you to deliver key nutrients to your growing baby. Since breastfeeding is the embodiment of skin-to-skin contact, it’s essential that every new mom takes proper hygienic care of their breasts to ensure the health of their baby.
It’s extremely common to have questions & doubts about what skin products you can use when breastfeeding. Many new moms have apprehensions on what products are safe to use. For whatever you eat, drink, or use on your skin can get into your breastmilk, so it’s important to make sure you’re not using anything that could potentially harm your child.
If you’re currently breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed soon, it’s crucial to make sure the skincare products you’re using are safe. In this blog, we explore which ingredients are best to steer clear of and which formulas are most likely to be safe to use when breastfeeding.
Many ingredients that are commonly found in beauty products are dangerous when used by pregnant women. Ammonia, formaldehyde and parabens containing products should be avoided by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Here are a few skin care techniques and safe products that can help you safely care for yourself while breastfeeding.
A minimalistic skincare routine is ideal for breastfeeding moms, as it saves time and minimizes potential irritants. Choose a gentle soap without harsh ingredients or fragrances. Look for products specifically designed for sensitive skin to ensure they are safe for you and your baby.

Breastfeeding can be dehydrating, so remember to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Staying hydrated not only benefits your milk supply it also contributes to healthy, glowing skin. Aim for at least eight glasses of water per day to maintain optimal hydration.
When selecting skincare products, be mindful of the ingredients they contain. Breastfeeding moms must avoid products that contain retinoids, as they can be absorbed into your bloodstream and potentially pass to your baby through breast milk. Make sure to choose products with natural, plant-based ingredients and consult with your dermatologist if you have any specific concerns.
