I did nurse for a bit when he was born, but I had to stop when my c-section incision became infected. I was put into the hospital for 9 days so it was easier to put him onto formula. Plus I personally didn't feel comfortable with him having the chance of getting anything that they were putting into me. Plus I also began to flare at the same time... so it was all in all just easier.
But I was told that the aza would not hurt the baby if I did breastfeed. I checked with the GI and my OB and they both said the same thing. I think more and more research is being done and it seems like the drug is not as bad as once believed.
