Re: Medication Issues

After Noah was born I was sent home with Norco 5-325mg for my severe after-birth pains. I actually had Dr. Hale's book with me, as well as discussed it with the totally awesome LC that visited us during our stay, and would not have gotten it if it wasn't compatible with breastfeeding or posed risks to my newborn.

His 2008 book states "commonly used in breastfeeding mothers in the USA. He goes on to say that no data on hydrocodone levels in milk are available" and "...to reduce exposure of the infant, attempt to feed infant prior to taking the medication."

My son was born full term, after sporadic labor, FWIW.

This information may have changed in his newest book, don't know but it's on my "to buy" list.
