I would like to breast feed I am on an anti aniexty med me doctor had put me on. I will hopefully be seeing a new doctor I am getting referred to who can help me get on something that would be better to breast feed on, cause my old doctor did kinda a crap job of informing till recently he didn't want me to breast feed on my medication and he didn't really want change my meds no real reasoning why it was an over the phone appointment anyways back to my story. I found out some information done by leading doctor's in Ontario about the pill I am on and they said it was ok to breast feed on it. I will probably switch when I see the doctor though to something that will be better for me and baby (mostly baby in the next few months.) I have talked about this a lot my man the father he has seems supportive and finally the other day told me he didn't want me being on any drugs (medications I hate the word drugs), drugging up our baby with my milk. I am upset. Is anyone else breast feeding on meds for aniexty or depression? How does the daddy feel? Sorry this is such a rambling question with lots of info lol. I breast feed my daughter my first child who isn't his bio child, but that was before we really that close he didn't have any say( but he is daddy.) and he has such a problem with this cause it's his child my thoughts on anything to do with baby don't seem to matter. Sorry venting, ranting and mad? Why would people breast feed on some these meds if it wasn't ok? I don't know how to make him understand. Thanks for reading frustrated today and don't know what to do!

I know I breast fed on anti depressants and my daughter was fine. The father of this baby is very concerned about the baby getting the medication and doesn't think I should bother. How do you convince a man that though who doesn't really understand? He had no problems with me being on meds while being pregnant though. Don't understand.

I don't know what you're on, but my best friend has gone through three pregnancies and breastfed all her kids (still breastfeeding #3) while on Prozac. Kids are perfectly fine.
