User:What medicine can be prescribed so that it doesnt affect Baby feeding

Doctor:for a maximum number or 6 tablets a day.
Doctor:If she continues to have high grade fever, (temperature beyond 100 deg F)
Doctor:take her to a doctor nearby for examination
Doctor:to determine the type of fever.
Doctor:Have you followed?
