BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...
A few months ago we asked some of the Approved Vendors to offer some discounts to our community. A lot of them graciously did. We have been asked to bring those discounts back. The following vendors would like to share the love for this forum with you. I know we all appreciate it.

I would say No because no studies have been done on this yet. In my opinion I would think it would be like drinking Coffee.

Hi there, I don't normally chime in, because I am a newbie soaking up all the awesome suggestions and info you all have given. However, I actually have information on this one! I come from a family of 8 nurses, 5 doctors, and my sister is actually a Pediatric NP. I reached out to her and to my obgyn aunt and 2 midwives. I will also note, that most of them are surprisingly Kratom long time veterans! All of them, asked separately, gave a resounding No. It is not safe to use Kratom and breastfeed. It will most certainly pass through to your milk and the way infants absorb and react to what comes through the breast milk is unique in the fact that they are still in the process of brain development. The Ped NP suggested that you pump and feed prior to using Kratom. Then use pre-pumped milk for 4-6 hours after use. Then you can feed again. By then, the most potency has greatly decreased and most likely partially left your bloodstream due to the time lapse and also through urination. However, all of them said since there are no large independent studies done on the lasting kratom in breast milk, there is no guarantee that after 4 to 6 hours it won't still be potent. As some other supplements are even after 4 to 6 hours.

Hope my random medical family members were helpful!

Welcome to the best Kratom forum ever, KayKay. I’ve noticed you lurking around here (I have a best friend named Kay and we call her Kay Kay, so your name caught my eye).

Thanks for posting on this. Totally makes sense

Hi...my nickname was KayKay when I was little, a million years ago! : )
I'm with MadMax and the other that were negative on the subject. After you're all done breastfeeding and have had a break from kratom, it will be all that more enjoyable, if you choose to do so. Best wishes!

Hey everyone I have 6 kids and my last child is currently 18 months and I took kratom the whole pregnancy as well the whole time breastfeeding. I have seen zero effects on my child. I am still currently nursing him. I hope this helps. I am against pills and other things but kratom helped my pain so much and allowed me to have a very healthy happy baby.
