Hopefully you can get this cleared up without antibiotics!! But, if you do wind up needing to get some, most of them are safe in breastfeeding moms. Generally, if an infant can be given the same antibiotic for an infection. Mom can take it too without a problem.
I second the neti pot, if you can't find one, you can get some saline nasal spray and use it as much as possible... that will help loosen everything up. Sometimes decongestants can dry you out too much and your sinuses won't drain. Lots and lots of warm fluids will help too, as will running a humidifier by your bed at night. I hope you are feeling better soon!
