I was diagnosed with mastitis and was prescribed dicloxacillin. I was told by the nurse I should wait 2 hours before breastfeeding but the pharmacist told me there is no time limit. Wonder if any moms out there had this issue. I read I should BF as much as possible. Will the medication hurt my baby if I don’t wait?Answer Question

I had to take cephalexin when I had mastitis, can you call up your doc or pediatrician and ask them so you can get a definate answer. When I took the antibiotics I nursed like regular if not more I didn't have to wait. I would listen to the pharmacist over the nurse in this case. Also considering your doctor didn't give you specific instructions either...but this is MY opinion.
