PLEASE no judgement..I am looking to find out information from other moms who breastfeed while on methadone and how everything worked out when you weaned your baby?? I was on methadone when I find out I was pregnant. It was a shock, My Dr said my baby could die if I decided to detox. Well, My Angel was born perfectly fine and came straight home. :) breastfeeding it's really important to me. I breastfed my first one and plan to breastfeed Abby baby I have. My Dr told me it was ok, infact encouraged it. We've been breastfeeding 7 months now..going great!! I'm not looking to stop Any time soon but I just want to know how other moms slowly weaned there babies. Oh also, I've been tapering down over the past 7 months also. :-) but I just an worries he could suffer and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this when the time comes. Thank you So much In advance for any help. Be blessed and be a blessing. :-) :-)

I see that nobody has responded, but I just wanted to commend you on posting this question and caring enough to still want to breastfeed! Some people would be afraid to ask. I haven't personally dealt with this situation, but the pediatrician was the single best person i ever went to for advice on which medicines were safe while bf. My OB knew too, but the babies doctors seemed to know more. Good luck!!!!
