  • Amoxicillin and breastfeeding

    Hello,
    My 11 month old is currently taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection. I (the mother) have just been prescribed amoxicillin for an ear infection. I only breastfeed three times a day, and give her formula the rest of the time. Will she be getting too much of the medicine if I continue to breastfeed her while both of us are on amoxicillin? Thank you.

    No, the amount of amoxicillin in breastmilk is negligible. It should be OK to go ahead and breastfeed while taking the amoxicillin yourself.
