This is so true. The benefit must outweigh the risk.

I haven't taken anything in years and personally dislike taking any meds while pregnant or nursing, including tylenol I feel like you just never know what effect it could have.

While I don't have PPD, I do realize that I need meds at this time. That doesn't mean that I won't worry about it's affect on my baby, but luckily he's 20 months and doesn't nurse frequently during the day.
