In brief: Feeding problems

Babies who have breast fed when their mothers were on fluoxetine have been reported to have irritability, feeding problems, sleep problems, and poor weight gain.
In addition, the baby's brain is still developing, so there may be unknown effects on brain development since this is a drug that affects brain chemicals.
