Talk 2 doc: You need to consult your nephrologist about this since medical treatment is based on risk/benefit ratio. If your risk of losing kidney function is high, you will need to consider abandoning breast- feeding which is good but not essential. Nonetheless, i'd not be too concerned if the Prednisone dose is 15 mg a day that the baby will get much of it.
