Its been a long time since I have actually showed up here, but now I find myself needing answers or experiences from other moms. I'm aware its been talked about before but I never really needed the answers then to pay enough attention and now I find myself wondering. My bad.
I went through my pregnancy flare free, actually even medicine free, thankfully to keep baby safe. My crohns case is usually pretty mild. (I was so glad pregnancy actually can help a chronic mom, wow, I felt great the whole time).
After pregnancy I flared up and I don't feel like explaining the whole story, not really important, but now I am on Entocort and later they will put me on Imuran and I was wondering if other mothers have taken these while breastfeeding, with success or not? any effects?
They said I could of course, but I wonder since I have read all the warnings and wonder if the benefits really will outweigh the risks or if I should just make my little guy a formula baby. He's two months and 2 weeks right now.
One of those cases too of different docs saying different things...some say its okay, some say no way...
I'm pretty sure I have read here of women saying they had successful Imuran babies, want to know again for sure.
27 year old, married. Diagnosed with Crohns at 17, suspected of having for at least a year or so before that. Alot of Crohns in my family history. No surgeries yet. Taking Imuran.
