In brief: See below

Hydrocodone and its metabolites are detectable in the breast mild days after ingestion.
The level depends on the amount taken and your rapidity of metabolism. You can breastfeed with the infant being monitored but try to keep intake at a minimum of less than 35 mg a day. Remember its effect on the infant is also variable.
