I went to the walk in clinic today to get anti biotics for an UTI. When he prescribed them he said I should be okay taking them while nursing. I get home and he had left a message telling me to stop nursing for 7 days. Yeah, fuck that.

I've never had to stop nursing for uti antibiotics. For the pain relief yes. I just didn't take it and I drank tons of water. Helped with the pain just fine. When your bladder is full it doesn't spasm so no pain.

So then make sure with a pharmacist that you can continue to nurse while taking the antibiotics.

If not go back and get a prescription for something you can take while nursing. 


Seems simple enough.

So....you're okay with potentially affecting the baby. Alrighty then. At the very least, find out if the antibiotic they put you on could be harmful.

If that's the case I won't take them. A week of not breastfeeding will ruin my supply.
