Our expert says:
Limited amounts of metformin are transferred into breast milk, but the risk of neonatal hypoglycaemia is negligibl and it is unlikely that there will be any significant effect on your baby. In particular, there is no risk of neonatal hypoglycaemia, in contrast to the use of drugs stimulating insulin release, such as the sulfonylureas.
If concerend, speak to your prescriber first.
