Brief Answer:
You may take Cremaffin Plus

Detailed Answer:
Hi
I understand your concerns but don't worry. You may take Cremaffin plus for constipation. It's safe during lactation and won't affect your baby. You may take 15 ml at bedtime with water for relief.

Hopefully it will be of help.
Take care
