HI Alexis, yes, I did breast feed while taking KI drops before the TT. I don't remember anyone telling me not to. The pediatrician said that a small amount would be secreted in breast milk, but not significant to hurt the baby.
We were fine. I suggest you check with the pediatrician. It's not a common thing, I think you have a better chance of getting information for the baby's doc rather than the endo or the surgeon. Doug (baby) was not any different in any way, except he was better, cause he had a cold and was a little mucous factor, and the KCI he may have gotten in the breast milk, dried up his secretions so he could feed more comfortable! I'd imagine that all nursing mothers who have TT have gone thorough this like I did. Another mom in my nursing class (not nursing babies, but college of nursing) did the same thing I did, fed her baby, took the KI, had the TT, and all is well.
I glanced at websites that aren't good ones. The better ones say to check with you doctor. And I did find websites devoted only to the topic, except to say check with your doctor. Lots of the literature relates to the recent nuclear blast in Japan.
