Hi, Thanks for asking.
In my opinion Mefenemic acid which is the content of Meftal spas is safe when taken by a mother who i breast feeding. The other content which is dicyclomine in meftal spas is to be used with caution in children below 1 yr of age. But its transfer in breast milk is limited and so can be used sagely during the breast feeding.
