Am on antibiotics so want to balance with probiotics particularly as I have colitis. I've bought some acidophilus tablets from Holland & Barrett, are they OK to take while BF?

yes they're fine and especially good in helping you not to get thrush. The Breast Feeding Network have a drugline you can call to check out use of various drugs when breastfeeding (it's on the page i've linked to).
