Hello,

Breastfeeding during treatment with Metronidazole is not recommended unless absolutely necessary for the mother. Perhaps you should discuss other feeding options with your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Panagiotis Zografakis, Internal Medicine Specialist
