Im in the ER with horrible abdominal pain. Dr gave me lidocaine in indigestion medicine but it didnt work so he gave me morphine. I asked for the lowest dose so he did 2 mg. Is it ok to nurse? I just nursed right before the dose but I know he will want to again before too long because he is in the waiting room with dd & my friend. Hes going to get tired & he nurses to sleep.

Morphine is listed as L3, probably safe. How old is your baby? He would need to be watched.for sedation.
