Yes, you can enjoy sushi while breastfeeding, so feel free to satisfy that craving for a California roll or a spicy tuna! The dietary restrictions for raw fish mainly apply during pregnancy, but become more relaxed once your baby is born and while you're nursing.
However, this doesn't mean a complete free-for-all at the sushi bar. According to the FDA, it's still important to be mindful of the types of fish you're consuming. Some fish can be high in mercury, which can pass into your breast milk. Large, predatory fish like swordfish, shark, king mackerel and tilefish are the biggest culprits and should be avoided.
But don't let that overshadow the fact that many types of fish are packed with beneficial nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids. Just remember, balance and variety are key.
