That's a great question. I wouldn't think it is. Ask your doctor and tell what they say because I want to know as well!

Yes, it is bad for you and baby. You should absolutely not be in a tanning bed while pregnant.

My midwife said aside from the fact that tanning isnt good for you anyway that there is no problem with tanning while breastfeeding. I did it and had no issues at all :)

Tanning while breast feeding is fine. And I was doing research I'm not for this but women are starting to tan while pregnant!  I thought it was crazy.  Bc that's def not safe

She's right....tanning while pregnant you'd think is just common sense. Weird. Anyways...my OB said tanning while breastfeeding is fine....but just keep the lotion and tanning stuff off the nipples and areola area
