I've just started taking antibiotics as I have an infected gland under my arm which is so painful that I can't even put my coat on. I'm taking 500mg capsules 4 times a day. My question is has anyone taken these antibiotics whilst bf'ing and if so are there any reported side affects in baby? I know thrush is quite common!

TIA

Thrush is a possible, as is diarrhoea in baby. I took same for mastitis few weeks ago, baby got thrush but that was it. Fingers crossed you are ok.
