Breastfeeding when you have Inflammatory Bowel Disease

I have Crohns disease myself diagnoses when I was 22 years of age – so a good few years ago now. I get some many questions from breastfeeding mums with Crohns and Ulcerative Colitis I set up a facebook page for mutual support www.facebook.com/groups/BreastfeedingIBD/. If you know anyone with this condition who is breastfeeding, maybe having a flare or new drugs prescribed let them know. You can breastfeed with most of the drugs prescribed and through surgery if you need. IBD is in part linked with being formula fed and those of us with it pass on a genetic predisposition to our children to develop it. It’s a condition I wouldnt wish on my worst enemy and ther is new cure only symptom control. Fact sheet will be developed once book is finished
