We have had a couple women take Remicade during their pregnancies. I can't remember if they breast fed or not. Hopefully, one or two of them will be along to share with you.

I know at least on mom here -- Stef17 -- breastfed on it. The general thought is that the molecule is too large to past into your milk. The best resource for looking up any drugs in milk is Dr. Hale. He wrote the book used by lactation consultants and has a searchable database. You can't ask a question unless you are a medical professional, but you can search remicade links.

Congrats on your new baby and pregnancy! Enjoy your last 10 weeks carrying that LO around. It's amazing how quickly you miss those not so little kicks. Good luck breast feeding too. It can be hard at first, but is worth it and, at least for me, helped my hormones regulate slowly, so I pretty much dodged the post-baby flare.
Mom to a healthy Pentasa baby and pregnant with #2. 5+ years remission, woo hoo!
