I got given both og these when I was in hospital after having my c-section and I was breastfeeding, then got prescibed metronidazole again after a few weeks cos of an infection and again, the doctor knew I was breastfeeding.
My son was given cefalexin for his water infection when he was just 3 months so i imagine that is fine with Bf but not sure about the other one i'm afraid. I have a BF medication book but its out on loan to someone
I will text her and see if she can look it up for you xx
There is a bit more about Metronidazole, it says that it used to be thought it made the milk taste bad, but no one was ever able to find the research this was based on, and isn't now thought to be a problem.
Personally, I'd take them and continue to breastfeeding. I hope you are feeling better soon.
I was prescribed that and another at same time doc did say that one may make the milk taste a little funny but had major infection after c section and they didn't see problem with it. baby was fine on them too. Although we both had bad tummys cos of being on such large doses of antibiotics apparently that would have happened no matter which we took.
Yup I was on both when I got a nasty womb infection after the birth. They were pumping it into me by the bloody gallon in hospital and I had to take so many tablets everyday. It only made his poo green that I noticed.
