  • Breastfeeding my 4 week old, but had to take 3 kinds of antibiotics, pls help

    Hi, i just had a post op c-section wound infection, and needed to take the following antibiotics for 2 weeks

    Clindamycin 300mg (4 times a day)
    Ciprofloxacin 500mg (2 times a day)
    Doxycycline 100mg (2 times a day)

    can i take these antibiotics safely all at the same time, while breastfeeding my 4 week old infant? I really want to breastfeed him, and don't want to pump and dump as much as possible. Pls advise. Thank you so much.

    This is probably TOO much and I'd worry about inalterably changing your infants gut microbiome. I'd suggest your pump and discard for these 2 weeks. But, keep your milk supply up. I would not recommend you feed this milk to your infant. Maybe you could purchase Donor Human Milk instead.
