My midwife tested my breastmilk after I had a fever and found it positive for bacteria and said I have mastitis. She put me on Clindamycin and said it is safe to take while breastfeeding, but the pharmacist warned it could reduce my milk supply or cause other effects in my baby. I have taken a few pills and am starting to feel an upset stomach. Also I can't take penicillin as I am allergic. The mastitis seems to have gone away (no more redness- the redness was small to begin with). I want to stop taking the pills as I am really worried about how it will affect my milk and baby... is mastitis dangerous? Will it be bad if I stop taking the pills? I am so worried!
