Tramadol can be found in breast milk but in very, very low doses - lower than is sometimes to given to children for pain and a study found no ill effects in children being breastfeed by mothers taking tramadol. This site  does, however, watch your child for increased levels of sleepiness, difficulty breastfeeding, breathing difficulties or limpness, and contact a physician immediately if any of these occur.
