Brief Answer:
Avoid breast feeding.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
A 40 days pregnancy can be terminated using the pills that you suggested. But the effect of medicine will be there in her breast milk and can cause mild diarrhea and fever to the baby. It is best to avoid breast feeding for at least 7-10 days in case she takes the pills.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
