Can i BREASTFEED while FMT?

Postby Ricedoll » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:48 am

Can i still breastfeed my baby while doing FMT? No other meds.
She is 1.5 yr old so the milk is only a very small percentage of her daily diet.
Does FMT affect at all? But i assume its just ultimate probiotics.
Thanks for advice!

Part of the FMT is a course of c.diff meds that finish the day before the procedure so it depends what med you are given.
You need to ask your Dr who is in charge of your care but I expect the only answer would be it's probably ok but the final decision is up to you.

The bacteria that you get trough FMT stays only in the gut , it doesn't go anywhere else. I don't see a reason why you should not breastfeed , especially since you stated that you are not taking meds!

Thanks a lot!
I actually dont have c.diff but have UP which is a mild form of UC that stays only in the rectum. But I follow this forum since its FMT related!

I would double check with your doctor and/or the pediatrician.
