I had my gall bladder removed today and I told the surgeon an one of the RNs that I breastfeed. Both tried to assure me that this medication is fine. However, 2 pharmacists I've spoken to were quick to oppose my breastfeeding while taking it. Now I have a very unhappy little boy up crying in the middle of the night because all he wants right now is to breastfeed and I'm not sure what to do. I tried offering him a bottle and he refuses it and becomes more upset Not sure if adding this makes a difference, but he only breastfeeds when going to sleep / sleeping. He breast feeds when he first wakes up in the morning, then again when he lies down for a nap, them again at bed time, and typically a couple of times during the night.
Absolutely not. This medicine is an opiate it will pass into the babies blood stream. Unles you want C.P,S, in your life don't do it. Please for the baby's sakee. Pepper
OFB15; YOU COULD CALL the babies doctor and talk to someone. I do know that all 4 of my kids my wife was given Vicodin on her release and the doctors also assured her it was okay and all my kids are doing fine 30 years later plus They really don't like you taking anything but you have to weight the pain vs/ what the doctors are telling you.
I wanted to add that someone close to me was taking vicodin in her last trimester. When she had the baby it had opioid in her system.C.P.S. step in and it wasn't nice. Kust letting you know.
