  • New data on botox

    Hi. I have a 2 year old who still breastfeeds to fall asleep and when she wakes up. I don't think she gets a whole lot of milk. She is very healthy except for chronic idiopathic constipation that' we've dealt with since she was 6 weeks old. When she was a year old i got botox injections and then repeated them a couple more times after reading up and even talking to the injecting doctor . Her constipation continues and she takes a lot of meds for it although they have ruled out anything serious. I read the most recent small study of milk samples taken from lactating women and saw that some samples actually did have small amounts of the toxin in their milk when it seemed like the theory before was that the molecule was too big to enter the milk compartment. I understand that the amount was small enough that it would not cause significant harm to a breastfeeding child, however, wondered if it could still be enough to exacerbate something like constipation.I have not had an injection for 6 months and nothing has changed for her so common sense says it is the same issue she's had her whole life. But thought it worth the ask with that new little study.
