What up friends? So a few years and a couple of kids later here i am!!! Been out of the loop for a minute. Went from body building to doing 13k runs lol funny shit i know! My question is can a breast feeding mother take gh?
Found this on the web, someone discussing this very subject.

IMO the rewards for the mother using the GH nowhere offset the potential risks to the child. Not something to experiment around with. The mother needs to wait unitl she is done breastfeeding. Most women dont end up breast feeding that long anyhow. My wife made it about 10 months on my first daughter and 12 months on our second, and most women dont make it nearly that long. Just have her wait, or if she feels like she cannot then she needs to stop breastfeeding and go to formula.
If she wants to use the GH to get lean let her know that breastfeeding is one of THE BEST ways for new moms to lose weight. Producing all that milk takes a lot of calories. The more the baby drinks the more milk she will make and the more calories she wil burn. My wife lost her weight fast just breastfeeding and eating right. No exercise was even needed.
I have to agree with Maldorf on this one. There is too much unknown, I don't think the benifits to the mother out weigh any potential risks to a newborn.
If you want a placebo effect you could just give her some vitamin C and tell her it's some fancy new fat burner.
If I were you I would really impress on her the importance of breastfeeding for the baby since it is so so much better for your baby. Be sure to tell her that research shows breastfeeding mothers can and will lose weight faster because of the reasons I already mentioned. Breastfeeding is a win for all involved, except maybe for Daddy! When my wife was breastfeeding it was hands off for me, and thats really tough for a guy especially since she picked up a whole cup size.
I don't understand how anyone could put their selfish wants before their child. Even if there is a 99% chance nothing will happen why take the risk? That mother can't just wait a few months before starting.
Selfish mother of the year award.
My wife is breast feeding now with our 4 month old and she is not touching anything other food and a bit of exercise for weight loss. Weight loss will happen, just give it a bit of time. It's different for all women.
