Breastfeeding safe while taking epilepsy medicine - Boots WebMD

A new study provides reassurance for new mothers with epilepsy, suggesting that breastfeeding while taking epilepsy medicine does not harm.

Breast milk is the best first food for babies, providing the nutrients they need along with antibodies from their mother’s immune system to help them fight infections. Studies have shown that breastfeeding has other benefits as well, including a faster loss of pregnancy weight for women and possibly higher scores on inligence tests for children, although researchers are still exploring this.

BootsWebMD does not provide medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. See additional information.

One study found that children whose mothers took epilepsy medicine had similar scores on inligence tests at age 3, whether they had been breastfed or not.
