I have Mitral Valve Prolapse and need to take 2g of amoxicillin before getting my teeth cleaned. Is this safe while I breastfeed or should I wait until DD has weaned, which will probably be at least 8 months from now and I didn't get my teeth cleaned while I was pregnant so it will be years between cleanings. Or do I pump and dump? :-(

I have taken amoxicillin when breastfeeding. It is one of the safe antibiotics. I do recommend taking probiotics (a couple of hours apart from when you take the antibiotic) to prevent thrush.
