Abstract: Oestrogen transdermal patches are now being used in the prophylaxis and treatment of post partum depression. Oestrogens are known to have potential adverse effects on breastfed infants. This case describes jaundice and poor weight gain in the child of a lactating mother prescribed oestrogen transdermal patches. There is a need for caution in the use of this therapy in breast feeding mothers and health professionals should be alert for problems.
