Breastfeeding and stool softeners question

I gve birth last sunday, since then I have been told to take a stool softener. My question is, will this come through my breastmilk to my baby? I don't want to do somthing that might make him gassy or somthing. Does anyone know anything about it? if so which ones are safe to take?
