i'm confused about why you are weaning due to prednisone.

the AAP (american academy of pediatrics) considers it to be a drug that is compatible with breastfeeding.

please consider this and do some of your own research and don't wean unnecessarily. your breastmilk is so much better for your baby than formula.
28, happily married, stay at home mom to 2 year old son. due to have baby #2 9/17/08
UC (probably pancolitis, but no c-scope yet), diagnosed June 2006, started having major symptoms sometime in January 2006, about 3 months after childbirth. 2nd flare (minor) may 2007 after taking caprylic acid for 2 weeks.

-Prednisone 8/28/06-2/28/07. and again may '07, 8 week course.
-Asacol, probiotics, ground psyllium husk, fish oil, prenatal

may you live all the days of your life.

I did my research, and I just don't feel safe giving that evil drug to him. The same people that tell us that the prednisone is safe for our babies are the ones that tell us it is safe for us - when I know that it causes some serious problems for me and a lot of other people.

It's a choice I had to make, and both my GI doctor and pharmacist agreed with me. He was breastfed for nearly 7 months, which is great!! Formula is proven 100% safe, whereas the drug is not.

I have already dealt with the negative responsives from all the pro-breastfeeding women I know. I have already dealt with the guilt. Ultimately, though, I have to do what is best for me and my baby. This is the decision that I feel is best for us.
