I have Hashimoto's Disease (hypothyroidism) and initially my Dr said I couldn't continue to breastfeed while taking Thyroxine, but I did some research and found out it was ok, so she checked it out and said it was ok (her info was outdated).
I am now stabilised on the meds and the Dr said I will only need to have blood tests every 6 months to check it. I am concerned that this is too long as any imbalance I have will go through to my son in my milk.
Does anyone else have a thyroid problem or any insight to help???
