Ate tuna tartare, freaking out.
 
I went out to dinner last night with DH and without thinking had a bite of his tuna tartare. Now I'm googling and reading about how bad big tuna is. I don't know if I'm being over the top but what I'm reading has me debating on stopping breastfeeding. It was literally one small bite but I'm freaking out over the mercury risk. Ugh. :(

one bite is fine and you just want to limit your overall fish consumption to reduce your exposure to mercury. no reason to not nurse! one bite is not a concern at all.

One bit is not going to impact your body. Many tuna varieties are not that high in mercury as some of the larger ones.

Mercury builds up in the body over time, so that one bite is not going to cause you or your baby to become ill. No worries! :hug:
