Iodine and Potassium Iodide

Hello!! Does anybody know whether I can take Iodine (Lugol) while breastfeeding? Thank you
According to Dr. Brownstein, milk is the only source of iodide in the breast-fed infant. At the same time, he says that milk from lactating breasts contain 4 times more iodine than the amount absorbed by the thyroid gland. So I would be careful about experimenting at this stage, specially with doses that might trigger detox symptoms that you can't handle. But yes, people have taken iodine while breastfeeding:

One safe way to experiment would be the heel dosing protocol:
