Breastfeeding and Medications:
The InfantRISK Center is open. It's a place you can call to get information about taking medications during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Very helpful! Best for Babes encourages you to give the number to your doctor as well.
Thanks to Renee for sending me the Australian number.
It is called Mother safe (medication safety whilst pregnant or breastfeeding). The number is 1800 647 848.
If you have the number/info for your country feel free to post it or send me a message and I will add it.
Hey Breastfeeding Moms! The mods and I thought it would be nice to have a place to post all of the articles and news you read about breastfeeding. So if you would like to read some breastfeeding news or post stories of your own you can do it here. Let's try to stick to positive breastfeeding news :)
