Codeine article ruffles feathers

Our article on a rare case of fatal neonate codeine poisoning ("") has a group called - who promote something called Family Medicine from a Biblical World View - all fired up.

On their , the group takes exception to the idea that women should take any meds after childbirth. They also don't seem to like the idea of physicians using their clinical judgement to decide which women could safely use Tylenol 3 for post-partum pain relief:

The “experts”, as they call themselves, disagree with this mother. One of their suggestions, according to the article I cited, is for nursing mothers to continue to take the deadly Tylenol 3, and keep an eye on mom and baby.

Instead, APM Formulators urge parents to "protect yourself through the knowledge of medicinal plants that have properties for after birth pain."
