    I was wondering if you still believe the risk to baby to be low for breastfeeding on ozempic?

    My baby is 13 months and feeds once per day

    Thank you

    We are currently studying these medications and have no concrete data yet, however, due to the pharmacokinetics of Ozempic, we suspect the amount in milk is likely to be low and unlikely to cause complications in a breastfeeding infant. Given that your baby is older and only nursing once per day, it is unlikely that Ozempic would cause problems.
