    Hi,

    I've just been prescribed these antibiotics as my stitches have been infected, doctor said the are safe to take while breastfeeding but just wanted to check if anyone has had these as well and how they were?

    I've not had them while breastfeeding but I had them while pregnant (I think) and if they're the ones I think they are they did the job for me. I can't remember if they are the ones I had but I'm pretty sure they are.

    I'm not sure on the strength or dosage of what we had, but I had this to give to my baby (5 months) last week due to a bad cold, I'm sure its fine.
