We compared adverse events among breastfeeding neonates born to Kenyan mothers receiving triple-antiretroviral therapy including either nevirapine or nelfinavir. Nevirapine-exposed infants had an absolute increase in risk for rash but no significant risk differences for hepatotoxicity or high-risk hyperbilirubinemia compared with nelfinavir-exposed infants. From an infant-safety perspective, nevirapine-based regimens given during pregnancy and breastfeeding are viable options where alternatives to breast milk are not safe, affordable, or feasible.
