Pediatrics
In brief: Moderately safe
Hydrocodone in quantities of up to 5mg every 4 hours have been found to have minimal effect on the breast milk.
Observation for side effects like sedation & constipation are encouraged. Some authors suggest feeding the infant just prior to dosing to limit direct effect.
