    We use Pura milk from Australia, the dark blue one, in the refrigerated dairy section. Give baby whole milk (not skim).

    Prenisolone has a Lactation Risk of L2 = SAFER
    Drug which has been studied in a limited number of breastfeeding women without an increase in adverse effects in the infant. And/or, the evidence of a demonstrated risk which is likely to follow use of this medication in a breastfeeding woman is remote.
    Half life of this drug is 24 hours and so it will take 5 days to completely leave your body.

    Augmentin and Ventolin has a Lactation Risk of L1 = SAFEST
    Drug which has been taken by a large number of breastfeeding mothers without any observed increase in adverse effects in the infant. Controlled studies in breastfeeding women fail to demonstrate a risk to the infant and the possibility of harm to the breastfeeding infant is remote; or the product is not orally bioavailable in an infant.

    There are five Lactation Risks, L1 = SAFEST, L2 = SAFER, L3 = MODERATELY SAFE, L4 = POSSIBLY HAZARDOUS and L5 = CONTRAINDICATED.

    If you send me your address I can photocopy the pages and you can share the information with your doctor.

    I was on prednisolone (effectively the same thing) when my baby was less than a week old and my doc said it was safe to continue breastfeeding. I was on it for 2 weeks actually...

    I just called the doc to find out for you...

    From day 1-5 I was on 30mg a day
    Day 6-8 20mg a day

    I was only on it for 8 days in total, not 2 weeks (sorry!!)

    I know the my doc reduced the dosage for me because I was breastfeeding. If I wasn't breastfeeding, I would have had a stronger and longer dosage. He was really supportive of that, actually. And since my daughter was less than a week old at the time, it was incredibly difficult for me since I knew that if I couldn't breastfeed then, it would have probably meant that I wouldn't be able to at all...

    So if anyone needs a good neurologist, I recommend Dr Jason Fong in Melbourne Plaza ;)

    i use pura too...if you are into organic milk that is also readily available at Wellcome....can't remember the name off hand, but it's very clearly marked and cost $50 for a litre. Anyhow, have started with pura since my daughter just turned 1 and she seems to like it....
