I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis five years ago and before becoming pregnant controlled it with Humira. During my pregnancy I experienced few symptoms and was able to stay off of medication. I was feeling great up until four weeks after I delivered. My daughter is seven weeks old now and the last three weeks have been incredibly difficult. I can barely walk at times and my husband has to put my baby in my arms at night so that I can feed her. I am in constant pain--it is a challenge to simply change her diaper. I desperately want to continue breastfeeding. It has been such a wonderful experience and I just hate the thought of putting her on formula and no longer being able to comfort her with my breast. The thought of not being able to nurse my daughter is devastating to me but I don't know how long I can continue to be in so much pain and am afraid I have not choice but to go back on Humira. I am currently on as much prednisone as my Rheumatologist says I can be on without it entering my breast milk, not to mention the Motrin I am taking daily. My doctor feels strongly that I should not breastfeed while on Humira because there has not been enough studies to determine the safety of it. This is killing me and I don’t know what to do. Does anyone out there have a similar experience or any advice?
