Thread: Breastfeeding after getting a chemical peel

    Default Breastfeeding after getting a chemical peel

    I'm freaking out because I just got a jessner facial peel and didn't think to research about breastfeeding my 2.5 month old baby! It was a Christmas gift from my husband and I'm normally so good about researching these kinds of things

    If you know the names of the chemicals used, you can try looking them up here: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/news/lactmed_announce_06.html and/or tomorrow you can call infant risk www.infantrisk.com

    When you talk to infant risk, it might help them to know the concentration of the chemicals, how long they were applied and how large an area of your body.

    Here is the lactmed entry for salicylic acid, https://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/s...temp/~Yg2NCY:1 which I found is one chemical used in peels by reading this article. http://www.webmd.com/beauty/cosmetic...l-treatments#2 It looks like the primary concern is that baby should not come into contact with the areas of your body that was treated, (to avoid possible direct ingestion) but not any concern the chemical would be present in your milk. But I have no idea if this chemical was used in your peel or what other chemicals might have been used.

    Thank you! I'll definitely call infant risk. Other than that I've just been feeding him stored milk and pumping. The woman who performed the peel said that it should be fine after 24 hours but I don't want to take a chance on my little baby!
