Penicillin and breastfeeding
I just had a root canal, and I have to take penicillin for a week or two to prevent infection.
Is it safe to breastfeed while on?Question:
Penicillins are used to treat bacterial infections, though there are many varities. If this is Penicillin G, it's been been approved for use in nursing mothers by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Penicillin medications generally enter human milk in small concentrations. But it's still wise to watch your baby for diarrhea or an allergic response.
