It is not.

You can still breastfeed.

Hmm that's odd, because I remember reading somewhere that only absolute contraindications were infectious diseases like HIV etc.

Here's something I found from the NIH:

Quote:
There are many benefits to the infant to be breastfed and to the mother to breastfeed. There are, however, a few conditions where the tremendous benefit may be outweighed by maternal infection, disease, drugs, or contaminants as these are rare. HIV is the only infection that is an absolute contraindication in developed countries. Galactosemia is the only infant disease and there are a few medications that are contraindicated.
