But Lialda is just mesalamine. I took mesalamine while nursing my twins, from when they were 4 months until we weaned. The GI doc strongly recommended weaning, but he was just covering his butt. My pediatrician and I went over the literature carefully, and concluded that the only known risk was the possibility of digestive upset in the babies. So we monitored carefully for that. The kids were fine, and still are.
Entocort is a corticosteroid. I know that prednisone is AAP approved for use in breastfeeding, and I took it for six weeks while nursing (the twins were about a year old at that point.) I don't know how Entocort differs from other corticosteroids. If you post a new thread, and in the subject line ask for it to be looked up in Hale's, somebody here should be able to help you. I don't have a copy myself, but when I was making meds decisions while nursing, people here were very helpful.
I have ulcerative colitis, which is a bit less complicated to treat, but I can say from experience that feeling well makes you a better mother. I flared when my twins were 4 days old, and tried living with it for two months before I finally had to admit it wasn't working. My pediatrician told me that in her opinion during the first year the benefits outweigh the risks for all but a very few categories of meds-- like anticancer drugs, and those that suppress the immune system, and a few other very strong drugs. So I say that it's good that you're thinking ahead and doing the research and are prepared.
