take a good look at my signature. I took all of that except skelaxin, tramadol, and cellcept during my latest pregnancy. I would get my condition under control. I was in remission with medication when I became pregnant. My son will be 6 months old in a few short weeks. He is healthy and thriving. You need a rheumetologist. You also need a high risk specialist. I would suggest consulting a reproductive geneticist as well. All my doctors advised against breastfeeding. Breastmilk passes antibodies to the baby and if your immune system isn't normal it can pass abnormal immune processes on at least temporarily- none of mine knew for sure how bad it was or how long term it would stay in the child's immune system but they all agreed it wouldn't be best for the child. Then there is the fact that ALL medication passes into breastmilk in some amount. You need the medication to be healthy enough to care for your child but the child does not need to take the medication too.
I will say that I breastfed my older 2 children before I was dxed and they had more health problems early on than my son has had. The part of your immune system a child is born with is replaced by the time the child is a few months old with the child's own immune system. Continued exposure to abnormalities might have a lingering effect but it is impossible to know for sure.
That aside breastfeeding was a wonderful experience I wish I could have with my son but bottlefeeding does have some serious benifits- I always know he is getting enough to eat, hubby can feed him if I am unwell, he sleeps longer than breastfed babies do, I don't always smell like sour milk, my breasts are not painful every few hours, the list goes on and on. I personally advocate for breastfeeding whenever you can but with anyone who has autoimmune issues I think you need to seriously think twice.
