This is something I see a lot and it truly scares me. Women who are breast feeding that are JUST worried about drying up their milk from hormonal birth control. But it seems that NO ONE is worried about the hormones that enter your body with hormonal birth control and even though its a little filtered out in your milk it is still coming out in the milk.
Does no one have a problem with feeding hormones to your child from birth to whenever you stop breast feeding. There are plenty of none hormonal birth control, the easiest being the copper IUD.
What is everyone opinions on this? Have you even thought about the hormones you are giving your child every day multiple times a day? Just because the doctor says it is safe for YOU and YOUR MILK makes it ok?
