I've taken Melatonin 300 mg while depressed. That depression part passed away doctors suggested not to feed the baby for 24 hrs. I am worried now and question is will that impact on my baby as I consumed high dosage? I heard this Melatonin is a harmone inside our system. What could be done to give breast milk to my baby. Apart from this my milk level got reduced drastically. Usually I get 150 ml per 3 hr, now 30 ml whole day. Was that impacted on my breasts?
SAS; It says that no studies on breast milk and if it is in it But they do give babies as young as 6 months Melatonin so even if the baby gets some it is not going to be enough to hurt other than it says the babies at 6 months when they have given it to them do sleep better. You might just want to put a call in and talk with your OBGYN OR NURSE JUST TO MAKE SURE.Chuck1957
SAS; I JUST found this and it pretty much says the same as what I did check with the doctor. here is the copy and paste.(((It is not known whether melatonin will harm an unborn baby. Do not use this product without medical advice if you are pregnant.
High doses of this medicine may affect ovulation, making it difficult for you to get pregnant.
It is not known whether melatonin passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this product without medical advice if you are breast-feeding a baby.
Do not give any herbal/health supplement to a child without medical advice)))) ok good luck Chuck1957.
