I checked the search bar under breastfeeding and came up with nothing. Does anyone know if this is safe? This woman has back pain so I thought I'd ask here.

Great question for the forum!

My vote would be YES. And I’ve never had kids and have a slanted view on parenting. If I were to carry a kid, I would trust kratom before I trust water from the tap (fluoride fear). But. Like I said, slanted view from zero experience.

Still. I would recommend kratom over a Tylenol any day.

There are some articles on the web if you google Kratom during breast feeding. On Reddit there is a thread _Kratom and Breast feeding.
There are some testimonies of women who have. But mostly the effects of taking kratom on the baby from breast feeding are unknown because it has not been studied enough.

No doubt some of the alkaloids would be transfered to the baby through the breastmilk, however, since Kratom is no more damaging than caffeine it should be safe AS LONG AS the baby is happy while mother takes Kratom.

I would caution though that the baby probably should not be weaned suddenly off the breast milk. As long as the mother weans the baby grandually there should be no problem but ALWAYS take the cues from the baby.
It is far healthier for baby to get breast milk. A few alkaloids in that milk are not likely to do anything harmful.

Mother should look after her bowels...baby should be fine as breast milk has a laxative effect.

I was reading a baby forum a couple weeks ago, trying to see if it’s ok to take Kratom while pregnant, and I read several women’s posts, that took Kratom throughout their whole pregnancy, and their babies turned out healthy and happy. I think they all mentioned that their babies did not show any withdrawal symptoms after they were born either. This one lady said she was up to around 30 grams a day at one point during her pregnancy. These are just personal accounts from women who actually did this. That doesn’t mean that it’s 100% safe, but it is a little re-assuring for mother’s to be, who use Kratom.

Some woman don't even drink coffee while breasts feeding. I vote no. There isn't enough study's on it.

EXACTLY which is why I cautioned about stopping suddenly. We simply do not know.

Some women drink coffee quite happily while pregnant and breastfeeding with no ill effects on the baby. When pregnant, if I drank coffee my baby turned summersaults for hours so she definitely was affected by the caffeine. You have to listen to and watch your infant.

If a breastfeeding mother was desperate for long term pain relief and tried Kratom occassionally without any noticeable effect on the baby's behaviour, in my view it would be safer that tylenol.

In reality there are very few contraindications to breastfeeding. Most drugs do pass into the breast milk but in very small amounts that are not harmful to the infant.

This would be an individual decision made by the mother.
