I was really picky about what I ate when I was breastfeeding because I knew what went in me went in my baby, but I wasn't thinking about the body products I was using and how they seep right through the skin into your system. I started using mom and baby balm from L'occitane, but it got expensive and so now I use Modu which is a Korean American product, organic and all natural for both me and my baby. Love it and I don't have to worry about it tainting my breastmilk. You can check out their stuff at Just remember what you put on your body goes into your body. Love your posts. Best, J.
