TB test while bfing

I tried to google, but am seeing conflicting stuff. What have you heard about getting a TB test while BFing? I need it before I can start my new job. TIA!

  • Congrats on your baby!  I had been wondering if you had her!
  • I'm a nurse, so I have to have them too. I was told that it is completely safe.

  • Definitely fine.  Won't have any reaction unless you have Tb, in which case you probably shouldn't be BF'ing anyway.  But if you're not coughing up blood, you're probably ok.
  • Thanks! and yes.... she's a little over 2 months old. Crazy how time flies!

  • Yes, it is fine.  I am a nurse and had to have one while I was pg.  They use a killed bug, so there is no risk.
