    Hello madam, it is not compulsory to take blood tonic for breast feeding. eating a balanced diet will give you all you need because a healthy mother makes a healthy milk. supplements in the form of blood tonight is to top up if you already have a lack or giving out more than you are taking in. remember when you breastfeed you are supposed to eat for two.if you are loosing weight it might be because you are not taking in enough.if you feel unwell please see a doctor. cheers
