Most medications are safe to take while breastfeeding, but it is wise to check on specific medications to be sure. If you are told that you cannot breastfeed while taking a medication, ensure this advice is supported by evidence. A decision to interrupt breastfeeding should be based on accurate information. You can contact your local La Leche League Leader for more information specific to your situation; she has access to current resources on medications and breastfeeding. As your own baby’s advocate, double-check that your healthcare provider is using up-to-date information and resources to confirm any recommendation for breastfeeding interruption or weaning.
