Yes, you may give the medication to your wife for a short period even while she is breastfeeding.
Studies show that potential benefits outweigh any possible risks in breastfeeding women.

Hi Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

Do I need to stop the breastfeeding while medication, for a short time like 1 week as baby is very small and she can stay without feeding.

What is your opinion on that? should I give medicine and also allow to Breastfeed to baby?

Thanks in advance
