Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.
Dipeptide amino acid (Aspartic acid and Phenylalanine) which is used as a sweetener.
Only after a high ingestion of Aspartame phenylalanine would slightly increase in mother's milk with no harm effect on the normal child.
It should not be cause of concern except in case of phenylketonuria.
We do not have alternatives for Aspartame since it is relatively safe.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM´s pediatricians and pharmacists, and are based on updated scientific publications.
It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.
Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.
Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
