    Default Where can i check if my drug is breastfeeding friendly?

    I've been given a dose of steroids to take for the days to try and boot an allergic reaction i can't seem to shake, but where can I check if it's safe to still give my boy his night Boobie?

    He'll be fine without it, but i don't think i wasn't to have that fight if i don't need to

    Dr Rodney White is a specialist in obstetric drugs (breastfeeding and pregnancy) and is a FANTASTIC resource if you're no sure how the drugs you might/are/have to take will affect breastfeeding and pregnancy. He is based at Monash Uni and is considered the Australian expert in this field. Anyone can call him - doctors, specialists and worried mummies. His number is: (03) 9594 2361. Open 9-5, Mon to Fri. Really nice guy!

    Default Major maty unit in your state

    Not sure what state you are in but in WA you can call the major maternity hospital (KEMH) and ask to speak to a pharmacist- they will happily give you all the info you need. So try them or the biggest maternity hospital in your state.
