    botox and breastfeeding-I need help asap!

    I had botox a week ago and am about to go back to breastfeeding. My doctor told me that it most likely wouldn't pass though to my milk. She and another doctor told me that it binds to the area that is injected, which in this case is my forehead and eyes. Has anyone had botox and breastfed? I'm really freaked out about the situation now...

    I actually had Botox while pregnant and didn't know it....I was so afraid the baby would be paralyzed! She was (is) fine and from what I know it does stay locally in the muscle and does not get into your system. I think it will be fine.

    Sage,

    Thank you so much for answering me.. As you can see I have not gotten anymore replies. So your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Glad your little one is healthy . I must say that after I read your reply I relaxed a bit. I have actualy sent a sample of my breast milk off to a lab to see if they can detect any of the botox in it. It will be interesting to see what comes back. Should I let you know the results?

    Question Re: botox and breastfeeding-I need help asap!

    Hi!

    Sorry about your anxiety! I am apologetically interested in just the topic of botox alone. Were you ladies satisfied with the result, and if you don't mind me asking, how much was it? Thank you!!!!

    I had botox last spring, and it only lasted 2 months.

    Hi, I was wondering what the results of your lab test on your milk were. I am interested in getting botox but I am breastfeeding twins.
