Methotrexate info needed ASAP! Anyone with Dr.Hale book?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've found this link which says it's ok to breastfeed during/after metho shot for ectopic, can anyone who has dr.hale's book confirm?

I know my son is over 2, but it would KILL him to no be able to nurse. He still gets at least 80% of his food/liquids from nursing!

This is what it says about methotrexate in my 2002 Hale's:
Lactation Risk: L3 for acute use, L5 for chronic use
AAP: contraindicated in breastfeeding mothers
Pediatric concerns: None reported via milk, but caution is recommended

PM me or IM me if you want to know anything else about what it says.

I'm so sorry for your loss, mama.
