This is the best comprehensive book available for Lactation Consultants like myself. It truly explains how each different medication can effect breastfeeding.

Nursing my children, that is! I now buy it for all new moms that I know plan to breastfeed. It thoroughly covers everything from Benadryl to Benzodiazepines, Antibiotics to Antacids, Antidepressants to Antifungals to pain medications! I hate to say it but most doctors are clueless and will as a blanket policy tell a mom to "wean your child and take this medication." Not only is it handy for showing the doctor how wrong he is, for finding alternative, safer medications - but it also includes Pregnancy safety category ratings, for moms-to-be. A very useful tool for any mom in any stage of pregnancy or breastfeeding, well worth every penny.

I cannot say enough about Dr. Hale's latest edition of Medications and Mothers' Milk. Dr. Hale has been a leader in the field of breastfeeding and medications and I do not go a day without referring to this outstanding reference book. His information is current, referenced and accurate. A must have for any health care professional whether they be physician, nurse, lactation consultant, dentist...

I am a maternal child health nurse, and I'm often asked by clients whether medications are safe for them to take while breastfeeding, particularly antidepressants and other psychiatric medications. Although I first and foremost tell my clients they need to have this discussion with their doctors, this book enables me to educate myself so that I can share basic information about possible risks vs. benefits with clients so they have a good starting point. This book gives very specific information about safety data for use during breastfeeding for every medication you can think of. It also has detailed information about the pharmacokenetics of the medications in breast milk. I wish every healthcare provider in the fields of OB, family practice, pediatrics, and psychiatry had this on his/her bookshelf. As a patient myself, I've found that some physicians freely admit that they are hesitant to prescribe even necessary medications to a nursing mother because they lack knowledge about medications taken during lactation.

One caveat: I would not recommend this book for consumers without at least basic knowledge of medical research. This book lists the results of studies without much interpretation for those without a good understanding of the limitations inherent in medical research. Similarly, the pharmacokenetic information would probably not be very helpful to someone without some knowledge of pharmacology. This is a book intended for healthcare providers, although an educated healthcare consumer may find it helpful as well.

This is a must have book for Healthcare practitioners or if you're pregnant/nursing and taking medications. I am a healthcare practitioner and there is no better book than this to know what's safe in pregnancy and lactation. All other sources in regards to lactation say with most medications, "enters breast milk, use caution." This book actually tells you how much of the medication enters breast milk and if that affects the baby. I refer to this all the time and recommend it to my friends. The author has a great website as well that you should visit: [...] . The book also has great tables at the back that lists all of the current available over the counter medications, what will increase/decrease milk production, as well as a list of all the current available hormonal contraceptive pills.

I have a condition called trigeminal neuralgia, and have been having trouble figuring out the right medication to help. The very first time I was diagnosed & prescribed meds., I was told to stop nursing immediately. Turns out, the medication was just fine to take while nursing--it is clearly listed as such in this book. I didn't find out until after I weaned my son though, and it was a disappointment. My local LLL leader was able to inform me later because she has a copy. Now, I'm nursing another child, and again having complications. I decided to invest in the book myself. It is very clear. Some of the language is more for physicians than for a lay-person, but there is enough info. to make an informed choice. Best of all, you can bring the book to your Dr's. appointments so that he/she can work with you to select the safest medication for you and your nursing baby. There is also info. about these medications & pregnancy. When I'm done with it, I will probably donate it to my local LLL or library, or even give it to one of my Dr's so others can get good use out of it.

I work in an emergency department and purchased this book to help guide decisions on what medications are acceptable for nursing moms. Previously, all I had to go by to make decisions were recommendations from epocrates, which usually state "caution advised" but does not provide any additional information. I found this book to be helpful as it cites studies in which medication levels and effects on breastmilk and nursing infants were reported, and helps to make an educated decision on whether the risk is worth the benefit for the mom. I use the book on a regular basis. It does not have all medications in it, but has been very helpful since purchased.
