Medications and BFing

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Medications and BFing

When I was PG there were many drugs I could not take. Is the list the same while BFing?

I would call your dr about them because Im on an antibiotic due to an infection my little one is 9 days old. I couldnt take this antibiotic when I was pg but can now and Im nursing. The dr said a lot of them you can take when your nursing but not when your pg.

I don't think your doctor would be as informed about breastfeeding and medications.

Check here for a good list:

Also, there are usually substitute drugs you can take. Check here to see if there are:

When the drug comes up, go down to the Lactation database.
