Most probiotic formulas are OK to take while breastfeeding-but if they contain other ingredients than probiotics then I'd be cautious about taking them. You can get the probiotics you need by eating cultured foods like yogurt.
I'd avoid the other supplement, and always talk with your doctor if you have any concerns about a nutritional product.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the acai berry ITSELF because its organic BUT they tend to put a lot of other junk in things like that - as noted by the "burn" part. If there is caffeine or ginko, it could be contraindicated for Breastfeeding. Be careful and read reviews, too, because the acai berry extract is useless if it hasn't been frozen in time.
