I'm REALLY trying to wean Brylie, but it's a challenging process.
We went to whole foods tonight and I bought probiotics and garlic supplements (for GBS)..but it says on the garlic "do not take while nursing"....I googled it, but not much really comes up..anyone know why I can't take it?

I've heard it warned against for causing gassy babies, or the flavor putting them off. My midwives and lactation consultant said there was no need to avoid any food really, unless my baby seemed unusually fussy after something. I've eaten dishes with garlic in them and she's never seemed to react negatively.
Then again, you will get a lot more garlic from a capsule then from just eating a dish.
I'm still nursing Ben (13 mo now) and I take a garlic supplement and have never had any issues. I think they put do not take while pregnant/nursing just as a precaution cause you'll notice tons of stuff say that. I think you'll be just fine. Garlic would only be beneficial I would think.
Good luck with the weaning! My little guy seems to be nursing MORE now than ever so I don't see weaning in my future anytime soon.
I would guess it's a taste thing too. All of mine have been subject to tons of garlic, especially dd when she was 15mo. I had an absessed tooth and took probably 12,000mg a day for two weeks. I know everything I ate tasted like garlic, so I'm sure the milk did too. But she kept on.
