spray tan while breast feeding

Does anyone know if its safe to get a spray tan while breastfeeding?  I am in a friends wedding a few weeks after Im due and Im wondering if its safe for the baby if you get one.  I am so pasty white and the dresses are short otherwise I wouldn't even consider getting one.  Ive never had one done in the past.

  • I'm not sure whether it's safe or not but I wouldn't do it personally.

    I was in a wedding when I was 39 weeks last time and we had short dresses.  I used the Sally Hansen's airbrush legs to add some color and I think it looked pretty good.

  • Here is an idea, you could get those stick on cups for your boobs and wear those in the booth. That way your boobs won't get it on, I mean nobody will see the lines except you and your SO, but that way you can still get some color without worry about your baby sucking the die off while feeding.

  • Good idea..I thought about wearing some sort of bra top thing or something.. I am taking a breast feeding class this week and I should just ask them there. I just dont want to sound like "that mom" hahaha.
  • I would wear a strapless bra or something similar so you don't get the spray tan on anywhere that the baby will be sucking on. Otherwise, I think you're fine.

    Just keep swimming.
  • Could you use the repellant lotion that you use on your palms, fingernails, and toes on your breasts? I've not spray tanned in a very long time and will not likely do so anytime soon.
