More Information on Fabior and Breastfeeding

No research has been done to see if Fabior passes through breast milk in humans, although it does pass through breast milk in animals. It is unknown what potential problems may occur if a woman uses Fabior while breastfeeding.
 
Although you might not even think to be concerned about using a skin product while breastfeeding, keep in mind that just because a drug is applied to the skin does not mean that it is automatically safe for use while breastfeeding. Some amount of the drug will be absorbed into the bloodstream and could potentially pass through breast milk.
