Steroid Injections And Breastfeeding
Let me explain: Prednisolone is excreted in small amounts into breast milk. However, systemic effects in the infant are unlikely with doses of up to 40mg of Prednisolone or equivalent; infants should be monitored for adrenal suppression if the mothers are taking a higher dose. Most of the time the dose for injection is 40 mg. ...Read more

Weaning: It is always hard to wean a child if they are breastfeeding for comfort, but the best thing to do is explain to him in simple terms that he is a big boy now, and be consistent- do not say yes one day and no the next. Cold turkey. He will cry but he will get over it. Buy him a little present for being a big boy-. ...Read more

I am on extended breastfeeding, is it safe to get steroid shots on my hurting knees? Showed some wear and arthritis on my xrays - please advise. Thank yo
Okay: Steroids injections into the knee done no more frequently than every three months are generally safe during breastfeeding. Very little steroid gets into your breast milk. Oral medications for osteoarthritis need to be okayed by your OB or the doctor prescribing them. I prefer to advocate weight loss or weight control, modest exercise such as walking as long as it doesn't worsen the knee pain. ...Read more
No: Breastfeeding is not hard, but like learning to walk, takes some effort and practice. If you are contemplating breast feeding, see you baby's future pediatrician early in the 2nd trimester, for a breast exam and guidance tailored to you. Pediatricians will be working with you and baby, and it can be a great advantage to utilize their expertise proactively. ...Read more
Expectations: Great advice. I'll add that it can take a good month to get the hang of this new task. Many moms think they should be pros right away. If this sounds like you, adjust your expectations and give yourself time. Lactation consultants are also a great resource. ...Read more
No: Only if there are medical reasons to. If you discover you have an underlying medical problem (such as hiv) that can be transferred to your baby through breastmilk, it is wise to discontinue nursing. Certain medications may also enter the breastmilk and pose a health risk to your baby. Otherwise, unless physically or emotionally unable to, breastfeeding should be continued despite minor illness. ...Read more
Feeding when hungry: Breastfeeding on demand means tuning into a baby's hunger cues and feeding her when she starts "telling" you she is hungry. Look for alert periods, smacking lips, making sucking sounds, turning toward the breast, or sucking on her hand as hunger cues. Once a baby starts crying, she is usually really hungry. Breastfeeding on demand is a wonderful way to naturally build up a great milk supply. ...Read more
Why?: Breast feeding is both nutrition and nurturing and a kid gets something from both. After 8 months, the nutritional superiority begins to fade as other foods are added. The nurturing may fill a need for you both, and you can take cues from baby on when to let go. If you have to chase baby down to feed, or the kid finished quickly and wants to leave, its time to wean. If not, continue. ...Read more
Not Painful: As a mother of two who breastfed both of my children, I can tell you that the first few days are an adjustment period. The key to remember is that it should not hurt. The initial latching on may be uncomfortable but once the let down happens it not painful. To learn more about breastfeeding try reading: the womanly art of breastfeeding. ...Read more
Yes: At the beginning, with your first baby, breastfeeding -- although natural -- will not come naturally. It will take a few days of time and effort and help. But you can do it, and it is one of the best things you can do for baby and for yourself. Don't be shy in taking advantage of skilled nurses and lactation consultants (lc) after birth, and get referrals to lc for after discharge home. ...Read more
