I just got bit by my dog and have a deep puncture wound on my foot. I haven't had a tetanus shot in over 10 years and have an appointment to see my Dr tomorrow. I am nursing my 15 month old and am on antibiotics now due to a bad ear infection. I am extremely concerned about passing all of this to my daughter through breastmilk. My Dr says it is safe to get the tetanus shot while nursing. We are extremely delayed/selective vaxers and I am nervous as there is some mercury in this shot. Any thoughts on what to do? I don't want to give up bf but should I take a break from it and pump and dump? How long will it take for my body to get rid of this crap? Thanks so much!
