    Default TB Test

    Can anyone tell me if it is safe to have a TB test while BF?

    I don't have the exact answer for your question but I got this from The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding :

    If your illness is more serious--for example, if you are being treated for hepatitis or tuberculosis-- doctors on our Health Advisory Council still advise continued breastfeeding. ...

    So, I would think the TB test would be OK.
