Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks dor your qyery. Relax.there is nothing to worry. Antibiotics which are safe during breastfeeding are aminoglycosides/amoxycillin/amoxicillin clavalunate/macrolides/cephalosporins and these do not cause any effect on infant. Only if mother is having quinine then breastfeeding is stopped in case of G6pd deficient baby. Hope I have answered your query Wishing your baby good health God bless..
