Congratulations on your pregancy! I had a Humira baby (after two Remicade babies) and everything went well with vaccinations. The standard is to delay live vaccines until about 8 weeks after birth to give time for any Humira that might have gotten in baby's system to get out. My kiddo got all vaccines on time and now 6 years later she is healthy, no problems whatsoever.
I breastfed for about 9 months. No complications there either as far as taking the Humira goes. The molecule is too large to pass through to the milk.
I was part of the OTIS study on pregnant women taking Humira. They followed me through the pregnancy. I was taking a double dose of Humira. The head doctor, Dr. Kenneth Lyons (he "discovered" fetal alcohol syndrome) actually flew to my home to examine my daughter when she turned one. He said she was perfect and that the study showed that Humira was not causing any fetal growth and development problems.
I hope that can put your mind at ease. If you think of any other questions, feel free to ask! I'm no expert, but I've "been there, done that" and am happy to help however I can.
