  • I'm not sure about vicodin. Tell your doctor your BF maybe they can Rx percocet or darvocet. This is what I was given at the hospital after a C-section.

  • I don't think that you're supposed to and pumping and dumping is only beneficial to you if you're engorged. Breastmilk is like blood and is cleansed through time so the pump and dump method won't make you milk clean any faster.

  • Why take the chance that ANY drug gets to the baby?
