Anyone Take Singulair While Breastfeeding?

I was prescribed singulair along with some inhaled asthma meds. I've been taking the inhalers for years, but my asthma is really bad right now. I'm breastfeeding a 20 month old, but only in the morning and at night. I take the med in the morning after he feeds, then he goes like 10 hours before he gets milk again.

My husband is asthmatic and the ped feels that there is a possibility that she may be diagnosed later in life with asthma. She is considered at risk because she has had upper respiratory issues a few times this past winter. My question is that I've heard both good and bad about this medication and I am just concerned. Most of the issues involve behavioral outbursts and children becoming more...
