Customer Question

I am breastfeeding my 6 month old and she has started eating solids for 3 meals a day. I have 2 vertebraes fused in my neck and find the only thing that has helped marginally is taking 2, Tylenol #1 every day. (16 mg codeine) I always wait a minimum of 4 hours before pumping. Will the morphine levels be safe in my milk with having to take daily? I don't see extra drowsiness or feeding problems in my baby and I don't feel much difference other than a bit of mild brain fog an hour or so after taking it then it goes away by the 4th hour. Thank you in advance

This is Dr. David

you should let your ob doctor know that you are doing this

in the book, it is rated as not safe for lactating mothers.

codeine sulfate has a half life of 2.5 to 4 hours .

so some of it still is in your system after 4 hours, either 1/2 or 1/4 of the dose. so the baby is getting a tiny amount of that.

risks have to be weighted with benefits in your situation.

the risks are small for your baby, but not zero most likely.

usually they can go on just solid food after 1 year.

but your baby may be able to move to all solid food sooner.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback

you can always reach me directly with "a question for Dr. David" in the medicine or oncology categories if you have other questions

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
