I'm sorry to have to welcome you to our "club", but welcome nonetheless! [:)]
I'm pretty sure that mag is safe for babies, or else most of us here would have had a lot more problems with our little ones. I was on it for 6 days before delivering, and then pumped for 24 hours while I was still on it, so my colostrum was probably full of it. I don't think that it can harm the babies, but it will make them pretty lethargic, just like it does to us. [xx(]
As for the Zoloft, I am also pretty sure (obviously non-medical advice here..."pretty sure"? [;)]) that it is safe to take in pregnancy and while breastfeeding, so I am doubtful that it contributed to little Lucas's condition. But I would take this with a grain of salt and ask the doctors anyway, just to be sure.
Once again, welcome! Please don't hesitate to ask any questions or just pop in if you need to talk. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for your daughter and Lucas. How is your daughter doing, pressures any better?
