The Trash the Pump and Dump (TPD) app encompasses medical conditions, medications and substances of concern during lactation. Please note that there are very few medications and exposures that are absolutely contraindicated during lactation. If you are uncertain about a situation, please advise PUMPING AND SAVING! Most often dumping milk is NOT necessary, and the expressed milk can be given to the child later.
