Hello everyone! My last post here was about
how going off the birth control pill drastically improved my colitis, allowing me to maintain good health with only Lialda. Well, now I am 8 months pregnant
I have been blessed to have a healthy and uneventful pregnancy. I have stayed on the Lialda on the advice of several doctors. Now, however, as I get closer to my due date, I am concerned about
breastfeeding. So far, all anyone has told me is that taking Lialda could give the baby diarrhea because it will be present in the breastmilk. Otherwise the doctors seem to think it's okay. I hate to risk a flare, but if it could hurt my baby I would obviously rather quit the Lialda or consider using formula (though it would break my heart). Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks in advance for all replies, this board has always been lifesaver for me.
