This is a really good question. I signed up assuming that if I could get it while pregnant then it would be okay when BF - but now I am not so sure.

I called my ped. and they said it was okay... they actually recommend it because if the baby is less than 6 mts. old they have risks of complications from the flu....

I got it already. My ped stressed that it was important that both DH and I get it since DD is under 6 months. I EBF and I specifically asked him about that and he indicated that it was perfectly safe to get.
