Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

You can give breastfeeds to your child and there will be no side effects oh the drugs of cefixime and oflaxacin on your child.

The amount of the drugs that are secreted into the breastmilk is negligible and usually have no effect on the child.

But I advise you to wash your hands regularly with a liquid soap to prevent the transmission of salmonella bacteria.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
