Welcome to Healthcare Magic!
There are hardly any medicine which can cure the kidney stones.
Rather you should avoid XXXXXXX leafy vegetables, onions, garlic and citrus fruits and take lots of fluids. The stones of the size you have mentioned are frequently formed and are flushed out.
Ayurvedic/Homeopathic medicines are not subjected to rigorous good quality trials so there safety status remains unknown regarding the safety during breast feeding.
Just try dietary modifications and flush therapy and get follow up abdominal ultrasound 3monthly.
I hope the advise would be helpful for you.
