Thank you for your query.

You need not stop breast feeding at all. Even though you had been taking it unknowingly without any effect it shall not have any effect on the baby. You can safely continue breast feeding.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts.

Wishing you all the best.
