My daughter was born 6 weeks early and with some suppressed breathing that as far as they can tell was probably from my Seroquel. So she spent the first 6 hours of her life on a ventilator because of this stuff. After 2 days they had her off all oxygen breathing on her own and doing so well with everything they are talking about sending her home after only a week in the NICU. All the nurses know why I'm bottle feeding it's in the chart.
So I've just fed my beautiful baby a bottle that they told us that she probably wouldn't figure out for two more weeks. We are celebrating that she is off all breathing equipment and the heater then the lactation consultant comes in looks at the chart and says that she wants to know all my medication with doses so she can look them up for me because she wants to know that I REALLY CAN'T breastfeed on them. Then later starts to go on about how in cases of withdrawls that it's actually better for them to continue to get small amounts of the medication. It's like the words suppressed breathing mean nothing to this woman. I don't want ANY of my medication in her system I don't care if breastmilk is magical fairy liquid. I don't care if it will fix her reflux. Personally I care a lot more if my child is breathing the if they are a little barfy.
Sorry 90% of this may be a mix of I just gave birth on the 10th and that my baby is 60 miles away in the NICU but I expect somebody who has read my chart to just go with what it says. I already have enough guilt about my pills putting her on a ventilator.
