I am pregnant, BFing, and on Zofran.
Zofran is now approved for use in newborn surgical patients, so my doctor cleared it for me. If it's okay for direct administration to newborns, then it's most likely fine for my bfing daughter, especially considering the small amount she'd recieve through breastmilk.
I weighed the options, and knew that if I didn't get on Zofran, I wouldn't be able to breastfeed, period. I couldn't keep down enough food and water to care for myself, my new baby, and my daughter, and was losing a lot of weight. I decided that I'd rather take Zofran and be able to continue breastfeeding as long as possible (esp. since my daughter was only 6 months old when I got pregnant) than not take the drug and have to wean her.

Is it safe to assume that if it's safe for a developing fetus, it's safe for my toddler?
