Hi, how are you?? is there anyone here who was on imuran or 6pm and decided to take another medication to be able to breastfeeding ? I am on imuran and according to my doctor this medication is safe to take the all pregnancy. This is my first child and i am very keen to breastfeeding , i would like to know how was the pregnancy outcome for those who were in the medication mention above that changed to another medication. What medication did you take  that you could breastfeeding?Thanks in advance!!!  smilewinkgrin

I nurse my 11 month old twins and take 6mp. My GI, OB Pediatricians and lactation consultant do not see a problem with it. I take 100mg before bed so for the last 6-7 months the twins sleep at least 8 if not 10-12 hours before I nurse them. But they were nursing every 2 hours for the first 2 months.

I have never had a problem with any of my medications while nursing all 4 of my children for a year. The only one my GI thought I would have to pump and dump on was flagyl but fortunetly I didn't have to take it.

You will do what you feel is right and I completely understand you and others that may feel that I should not nurse while taking 6mp.

Good Luck! I thought I would be excited to quit nursing the twins (my last babies) but now I am getting really sad!

Krica - I was on Imuran for my 1st pregnancy and I BF for a few weeks while on it too. My GI, OB and the lactation consultant were fine with it too. Good luck with it - it was one of the hardest things I've ever tried to do and I really wish I could have made it work.
