    Jackie:
    Have you tried your lactation consultant? Tums are ok and they help with burning. I think pyridium is catergory B but I don't think its known if it passes into the milk. Maybe you could pump right after feeding, get some milk stored up, then take meds and feed breastmilk by bottle. This is my only suggestion, but be aware bottles can cause nipple confusion. A lactation consultant is your best bet!

    Your doctor should be able to tell you which medications are safe while breastfeeding even if he/she isn't educated about interstitial cystitis.

    Well, where do you live? Maybe if you post in the "by Region" area on this site, someone will be able to help you find a good doctor.

    Good luck.
