This phase might leave you craving for something tangy. This can be the best time to add apple cider vinegar to the diet, but you might have apprehensions as to whether it is safe for your little one or no. Here is taking a quick look at the merits and demerits of apple cider vinegar, most importantly whether you can consume it during breastfeeding or not.

The concoction undergoes aeration process after which it is bottled and sold in stores. Apple cider vinegar is of 2 types, Synthetic apple cider vinegar and raw organic apple cider vinegar.
