Breastfeeding: Hi there. Like all medication, the mentioned one is not recommended for use in pregnancy/breastfeeding, as safety has not been established. The gold standard is to outweigh the risk-benefit for mother and baby regarding the mother taking the medication or not. If the mother needs to take a certain type of mediation for a short period, it might be beneficial to stop breastfeeding for a short while.

Buscopan and nursing: In general, it's better to limit medicine while breastfeeding. Some studies show no excretion of buscopan in the milk of nursing mothers, so if this is a medicine that is needed for the mom, breastfeeding should continue, and certainly human breast milk is healthiest for babies (and good for their moms and the environment!). Feel better soon!
