As far as I know, it is safe to nurse while taking prednisone. I would consult with an IBCLC or LLL leader on this matter, or check out the Lact-Med database (by googling lact med). Many many doctors and even pharmacists are unaware that most medications are safe for nursing. In your shoes, I would absolutely get a second, and even a third opinion on the safety of this medication before interrupting nursing because of it.

You can breastfeed on prednisone, I did it the whole first year with my third child. Part of the time I was on huge doses. I had to be on IV steroids and breastfed in the hospital with pneumonia and septicemia. Steroids aren't a contraindicated drug for breastfeeding mothers. There is no need to pump. The hazards of formula outweigh any risk of any of the drug being in the milk. You can find lists of contraindicated drugs on the AAP website.
