Talk to your doctor.  Some products that are unsafe during pregnancy are also unsafe during the nursing period.

As long as your not breastfeeding it's fine.
It does contain some chemicals that r fine for us but babies absorb EVERYTHING and there skin is very sensitive. Any creams u use during pregnancy/breast-feeding the baby can absorb so try to use the most natural products for now. After u can use anything u like!
