Breastfeeding:

There are no data on the excretion of aprepitant into human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, because of the potential for serious adverse reactions due to aprepitant in nursing infants, and the potential for tumorigenicity shown for aprepitant in rodent carcinogenicity studies, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
