Had a c section 10 days ago and although the wound has healed v well, i'm in a lot of pain and MW said today that i have an internal infection so she has ordered me a batch of antibiotics which I'll be picking up shortly. MW said I was fine to still breastfeed with it but that baby may get more windy but just wondering if anyone has any advice / experience on this?

I had an internal infection after my CS and was on antibios for a week - I was feeding DD at the time and all was fine.

Yes I had this too and just kept BFing.

I don't know what they are giving you, but one lot I had gave DS a bit of an upset tummy and he stalled weight gain until I had finished the course - so just be aware that if your baby isn't gaining weight like the MWs or HV thinks they should be, this could be a factor.

Just wanted to give you an alternative experience (not to put you off) as this happened to me but the anti biotics gave baby DS a very bad tummy, I did have to take 3 different types though
