Why do you want the B12 shot?  Are you deficient, or are you anticipating that it will help you lose weight?  The reason I ask, is because a lot of people think vitamin B12 is a weight loss aid.  It is not.  I have pernicious anemia (B12 deficiency) and take shots weekly.  I have been on them for over 3 yrs and trust me, they do nothing to help with weight loss.  If you are deficient, however, B12 shots will help give you energy.  

Injectable vitamin B12 requires a prescription, which you would have to get from your doctor. Since B12 is a water soluble vitamin, it should  not affect breast feeding or your baby; however, for both your baby's protection and your own, I would never suggest beginning a new vitamin without following your doctor's orders.
