The good news is, yes, you can take amoxicillin while breastfeeding!
Amoxicillin is an antibiotic that's usually used to fight off bacterial infections, kind of like a superhero of the drug world. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it's generally safe for use during breastfeeding. This is because only a tiny amount of the drug makes its way into breast milk1 .
Studies2 also found that amoxicillin levels in breast milk are so low that they're unlikely to cause any harmful effects to a nursing infant. So, while you're busy fighting off that pesky infection, your baby can still enjoy their meal times worry-free!
As always, though, don't forget to consult your healthcare provider before taking any new medication.
