I just read an article about how there are so many babies born with a dependence on drugs. Methadone for babies, all that. I realize that there are people who take drugs for various conditions, I realize that accidents during pregnancy occur, necessitating the use of painkillers. But if you get pregnant and choose to carry a precious being, shouldn't you also decide to quit taking illegal drugs or incorrectly used medication? I mean that baby is borrowing your body. Give it the best environment possible.
I took only tylenlol during my pregnancy. I stopped my migraine prevention meds and migraine meds when we started trying to conceive. I knew anything I put in my body was going to her. Known risks to the baby or not, I took no chance. Breastfeeding, I continued with only Tylenol. I wouldn't take even that if I knew she would be needing infant tylenol soon.
Between all the lawyers ads asking if you took this or that while pregnant and now this article, I am even happier with my decision to reduce the amount of any medication my daughter would get through me.
