Thanks for posting your query.

If you are breastfeeding regularly, you might not need to use emergency contraceptive pills. That’s because in the first 6 months after having a baby, a woman who is feeding her child only breast milk and who has not had her period since giving birth is not likely to be ovulating, meaning that your ovaries are probably not releasing eggs that could be fertilized and cause a pregnancy. But be careful & use precautions.
Emergency contraceptive pills are not having any proven side effect on quality & quantity of breast milk, She can use it.
I hope your query has been answered.
