Aloe vera breastfeeding
by: Tracy

Hi there

Not many herbs have been studied or researched extensively when it comes to breastfeeding, but Aloe Vera tea is on the list of teas to avoid while pregnant or breastfeeding and has been said to be harmful.

Maybe if you are taking the tea for medicinal purposes you can find another safer alternative herb or herbal tea.

Hope this helps

Thai tea and breastfeeding
by: Lisa

I don't think there would be a problem, as long as you drink it in moderation. Caffienated drinks should be kept to a minimum.

Tea has much less caffeine in it, compared to coffee. I would suggest that you have a look at the caffiene content before buying.

Also look out for any strange symptoms in baby after drinking it, such as change in sleep pattern, fussiness and so forth.

hibiscus tea

I've never heard or read of hibiscus tea not being safe to drink whilst breastfeeding. I drank it during pregnancy and breastfeeding. I drink plain hibiscus tea, which is stronger than most of tea blends that include hibiscus as an ingredient.

There does not seem to be any research on it though. Drink small amounts at first and keep an eye on your baby for anything out of the ordinary.
