I am a mother of 1 month old baby, who is exclusively breastfed. My baby is healthy and gaining normal weight. The problem is that he sleeps a lot. I have been taking Carbamazepine and Eslicarbazepine tablets for partial seizures. Are these tablets safe while breastfeeding? When I consulted my neurologist, he said that they are safe as long as your baby is healthy and developing normally. But, I am worried about his sleep patterns. Should I think about switching to formula milk?
