    I'm curious to see how people feel about sweetners while bfing. I didn't use them at all while I was preggers, didn't even chew gum because of it. I am now BFing and am wondering what you all do about it and your feelings about it.

    Anyone feel like sharing?

    I didnt use them while preggie but do use Splenda now as it does not contains those harmful chemicals those other sweetners have.

    I still used half a sweetner in my tea (but only have one cup a day) and always drink sugar free drinks which I suppose contain sweetners. It never really crossed my mind to be honest.
