I have been taking norco for severe nerve damage from my c section my son is 3 months and I'm breastfeeding and formula feeding but mostly formula and I'm just worried he is going to be affected he seems fine while I've been taking it but I'd still like to make sure!
It is unknown whether the opioid, hyrocodone, is excreted in breastmilk. The acetominophen also found in Norco is approved for use by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The hydrocodone may only cause a problem for the baby when you completely stop the breastfeeding causing some mild withdrawal symptoms which may inlude fussiness, diarrhea, insomnia and muscle cramping.
