Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
These things if done once in a while then you should wait at least 24 hours to decrease its effect on the baby. If you are a regular user of such drugs then you cannot completely eliminate its effect on your baby even if you give longer gaps in your breast feeding.
