I was wondering if anyone knew if there were any worries about receiving rhogam while bf'ing? I am bf'ing my 16 mo son and just miscarried at 10 weeks (baby died at 6 weeks). They gave me rhogam at the ER and I did read the insert and it said mercury (thimerosal) free. I am relieved about that, but just wondered if there was any other reason that it would be bad for my toddler?

No ... by 16 months, the toddler's digestive system will treat antibodies in breast milk like any other protein and just digest them.
