You need to do your own research. I BFed my daughter for 15 months on Pentasa with no problems and that is very similar to asacol. ALL indications are that it is safe. Many meds also don't pass through breastmilk.
There are many safe meds to take. Pediatricians are not the experts on this. Talk to a Lactation Consultant who has Dr. Hale's book or go to his website and search yourself. There's no reason for you to have to wean or get sick. You can safely take care of both of you.
I'd post links, but my daughter is up from her nap. Nevermind, here's one:
Mom to a healthy Pentasa baby and pregnant with #2. 5+ years remission, woo hoo!
