Has anyone had any experience with breastfeeding while taking antibiotics? My son has never ad antibiotics before and I feel so horrible that he will get some from the breastmilk. I'm already trying to push him drinking water kefir for probiotics. He won't eat yogurt. I can't pump and dump as he nurses constantly. Also if I were to do that, how long shoud I wait after taking the antibiotic pill to pump and dump? Is there anything else I should be doing? Thanks!

When I have breastfeeding questions, I usually like to see what Dr. Jack Newman's website or books say. He's in Canada and is a breastfeeding expert.  Here's page about medications in general, and I think his book "Ultimate book of breastfeeding answers" has more specifics about antibiotics.  I don't think you have anything to worry about, especially since it's a toddler and not an infant.
