Is It Ok To Watch Tv While Breastfeeding
Curious - while breastfeeding baby, if I'm distracted or focused on tv, computer, book, etc and not baby solely, does that effect milk production/feed?
Probably not: Breast feeding is a good time for you to relax and enjoy and bond with your baby.

Question not clear: I am not sure I understand the question totally. If you are saying now that you are slowing gaining weight, it is probably related to your calorie intake, activity level and not having an increased metabolism if not nursing now.

Should be OK..: It is a categoryb medication and so should be ok. Still, small amount of this medicine is excreted in the milk so baby will be exposed, but should be ok because brief exposure has no real detrimental effect. If you have vaginal infection, a vaginal suppository is an option which has even less/minimal absorption into mom...Thus even less will be in the milk for baby. Good luck. ...Read more
