Hello, I’ve been prescribed flucloxacillin to treat mastitis but since I started taking it my 19 week old has been an absolute nightmare to deal with - very fussy and sleeping badly for naps and during the night. I’m not sure whether it’s related to the medication I’m taking? Or whether me being unwell has just been a bit disruptive for him. Has anyone else had a similar experience? Not really sure what to do confused Any advice about looking after a baby while you’re feeling unwell would also be great - my partner is at work all day and I don’t have anyone to help due to the social distancing.

...sorry forgot to add that I’m exclusively breastfeeding so that’s why I was wondering whether the antibiotics were maybe affecting him as well!
