She has just given birth to a baby 6 months of age, doesn't know if he can drink honey?
According to experts' recommendations, honey contains Clostridium botulinum toxin, which is unsafe for children under 12 months of age, can cause poisoning and very dangerous digestive disorders. As for adults, the digestive system has matured, can completely neutralize this toxin. Therefore, women who breastfeed drink honey will not affect breast milk. However, to ensure absolute safety, breastfeeding mothers should only drink pasteurized honey, not pure honey.
Besides, after the mother uses honey during breastfeeding, the mother should take preventive steps to avoid passing the toxin to the baby:

-Check packing date and expiry date when buying honey.
-Choose good quality honey, processed and sterilized properly.
If you want to drink honey, it's best to consult your doctor about the best type of honey during breastfeeding.
