    Can you call your nurse or doctor? I would absolutely check on that before I continued taking it. I know some medications can affect the baby who is breastfeeding.

    I asked my obgyn who delivered baby. He's the one that put me on it. I had a ton of complications when I had her! Emergency c section. I couldn't hold her or see her for 3 days I got very depressed! He assured me it was safe but I am still nervous!

    Zoloft IS compatible with breastfeeding and is safe. Very little is transferred in the milk. Very many nursing women take it.

    proud but exhausted working mammy to two high needs babies

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I forgot to mention we have a little subforum on here for PPD (that's how common it is). Come one over and take a look at some of the resources over there. And know we are all here to help each other.

    Pregnancy is different than BFing anyway. Sometimes what is safe during BFing isn't during pregnancy and vice versa.

    I know what commercials you are talking about, and FWIW, I wasn't taking anything during pregnancy and I had a baby with a cleft lip and palate. Sometimes, these things just happen
