    Default Botox while breastfeeding

    Does anyone know about the effects of using botox while breastfeeding. I am in the entertainment industry(acting) and have not used botox while pregnant but now my baby is 4mos and very healthy I am interested in using it again.

    Does anyone know anyone who has done this and what effect did it have on the baby?

    Hmmmm. Does it enter your bloodstream or just your skin?

    I wouldn't think it enters blood, but since it is a derivative of botulism...you'll want to be pretty sure.

    ask your doctor...
    He could send an email to Dr hale..
    he's the doctor with the best info on breastfeeding and meds.

    It looks safe from his web site but do talk to your doctor

    I would be nervous to do so, anything going into you, goes into your milk, that's my mind set.

    I read somewhere that there are concerns that botox can end up in your brain. I wouldn't touch that stuff with a 10-foot pole. I doubt there's much information on its effects, or the lack of effect, on breastfeeding but I would err on the side of caution.

    If you do end up taking it, just take a good hard look at Nicole Kidman's face from ten years ago and compare it to her face today. Not a pretty picture. Use sparingly.

    Yes I believe it is eventually is absorbed into your blood stream but not sure how much. I would of course lean on the side of caution but it is hard to believe no body has done this before.

    I have had most (3 different) doctors say to wait and one doctor said to wait 3 days before breastfeeding again. My baby will take a bottle but to not BF for 3 days would be difficult for him and me. Wonder if anyone has any other info out there. I know most doctors don't want the liability.
