Question:

Answer:

There is an excellent resource that will answer all of your questions with research and references to support the data.

The book is called "Medications and Mothers' Milk" by Thomas W. Hale, Ph.D.

This is an essential reference for anyone who guides or counsels breastfeeding women.

It is available in most book stores, and is revised every 2 years to keep up with the newest drugs and latest research.

Best wishes.
