    Good morning, Taking lime and water to burn fat is OK and it has not been found to affect the womb in anyway. However, I will advice moderacy in taking the lime water. Most especially if she has a peptic ulcer disease, she has to be careful in using the solution. There some drugs too that lose their potency in an acidic medium. Your doctor will always inform you about this if you tell him what you take. Usually, the period for exclusive breastfeeding feeding in between 4-6 months, so breastfeeding for 9 months is OK, provided your mum gave only breast milk during this period. Hope it's clear? Take care
