If I try and tell her no she flips...lol! I have a medical condition and need to start meds that I can't take and nurse. I have been at it for a week and she just won't. HELP!Answer Question
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics there are only a few medications you can take and not breastfeed. The main drugs you can't take are chemotherapy, radioactive drugs, and an old drug they used to use for bipolar disorder. When I was pregnant with my youngest I developed several serious chronic medical conditions and while breastfeeding him 3 years I was on as many as 10 medications at a time. I was hospitalized several times and continued to breastfeed in the hospital on IV antibiotics, steroids, gamma globulin, and other drugs. My doctors realized that the benefits of long-term breastfeeding outweighed any slight risk some minute amount of drug would get in my milk.You can call La Leche League Int. and they will look up your drug and tell you specifics about the drug you are taking.

My son is the same way he's 14months. When I told him "no more booby" he would go crazy and throw these little tantrums. I'm still in the process of weaning. Here are some ideas that I heard from others.One person said go cold turkey it's the fastest way. Another person said put vinegar on your nipples.They says it works. I haven't tried yet but I might do the cold turkey idea.
