Hi everyone! I've got a 1 wk old dd (triumphant VBA2C!) and just found out I've got an infection-noticed a difference in bleeding. Anyway, I've been given a prescription for Flagyl (generic-metronidazole) and it says not to breastfeed while taking this medication as it is excreted in breastmilk. I know that some meds get in your breastmilk and they say it is still ok to bf. Is this just a generic warning or can I not breastfeed? What will I do? I don't have near enough pumped to feed her for 7 days and, of course, I have to get rid of this infection. Will I have to pump and throw it away? I've thought of calling a pharmacist, but when I have in the past they usually say to call my doc. And I would have to wait til Monday to call him and he's an idiot to begin with (long story there!). Ok, I'm trying not to panic--but she's been doing sooo good!
Thanks for any help!
