Hi, I'm currently breastfeeding, 7 days post delivery (C-Section no less) and the recurring tooth abscess I had that no dentist would fix has now spread all across my face causing immese swelling. What antibiotics are safe when you are trying to establish breastfeeding?? My ds has taken to the feeding really well and I don't want anything that is going to spoil that. I really dont want to have to stop feeding for the 3+ days it would take for metronidazole to kick in 8(
