Yes, Dr. Wenstrom from Vanderbilt informed me that BF with Remicade is perfectly fine. I chose not to because it was proven that when my hormones flucuated, I flared up. (I did several rounds of infertility treatments). My Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist said it was fine as well, but it was my REproductive Endocrinologist who advised against it purely because he knew when my hormones went up and down and were not stable, I flared. So, once I delivered, I went straight back to birth control pills to regulate my hormones. I did end of flaring (in it now) and they are doubling my Remicade now.
Do not be surprised if you go several months without symptoms after child birth and then have symptoms. It's typical for pregnancy to cause flares after the drop in hormones.
HTHs! Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you want to chat. I felt at my absolute best when I was pregnant!!!
