hi..I'm a breastfeeding mom of 7 mnth old baby..can I use biotin pills ..is there any sideffect on breastfeeding.

We would suggest check with your doctor on medication related queries.

Biotin is a supplement generally used for hair loss. It is safe in small doses for breast feeding mothers and does not have side effects. Are you experiencing hair loss or hair thinning ? This is a normal part of the post partum period when the progesterone levels drop the hair goes into a falling phase. It will settle down and again enter the growth phase between six months to one year post partum. You may want to consult a dermatologist if you have further concerns.
