Carboplatin Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of carboplatin into human milk. Because many drugs are excreted into human milk and because of the potential for serious adverse reactions due to carboplatin in nursing infants, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
