Hi all.
I just wanted to introduce myself.  I have had ulcerative colitis since I was 15 (I am 27 now) and have a 14 month old daughter.  I am currently not taking any medication except for prenatal vitamins due to breastfeeding.  I am considering taking Colazal however feel that I should wean my daughter first.  I am starting to flare up a little but so that might help me make my decision quicker.  6MP is my favorite drug to be on because I feel almost normal when taking it!  However, it will be a couple of years before I start taking that again because I want to have one more baby and breastfeed it as well.   
Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and that I am so glad there is a forum for this!  It is a big part of my life and no one really understands what it is like.

welcome! a little off topic: if you have trouble weaning... i tricked my son into weaning by putting a little vinegar on my nipples (lemon juice works too) and telling them they were sick and he couldn't nurse anymore. he tried once and never again. he was 2 years old and showing no signs of stopping and i was pregnant. good luck.
