What is wrong with my doctor?

OK my doc told me to get the h1n1 vaccine so i went and got it today, i have a 2 month old and i am breastfeeding, i asked the health dept which one i should get the mist or the shot they told me either one, so i got the mist.....i forgot to ask my doctor if i could breastfeed afterward and so i called her and asked and her nurse said she said that i need to ask the place i got the vaccine from she didnt know......what the hell she is the doc, should she know? why would it matter where i got it from??? Anyone breastfeeding right after getting the mist?

    not the best help. But it does says if you have the flu, continue breastfeeding. They also give the shot to pregnant woman. So my best guess based on this information is that it is OK to breastfeed after the mist.

  • There's no reason NOT to breastfeed. Yes, they say babies can't get the vax until 6 months, but it doesn't pass fully through breastmilk. They can't have whole milk, either, but you can drink that, if that's a decent analogy.

    It is not known whether FLUVIRIN or Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Influenza A (H1N1) 2009 Monovalent Vaccine is administered to a nursing woman.
