Re: I need reassurance
with the PPs. Your milk is absolutely still the best thing for your baby, even with traces of antibiotics and pain relievers. and remember, it's not like formula is "pure" compared to breastmilk. It's known to have all sorts of trace and not-so-trace chemicals in it, things like BPA (http://www.ewg.org/reports/bpaformula), melamine (yes, even in the US: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...112600386.html), perchlorate (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/t/story?id=7242880&page=1), And let's not forget the occasional insect part (http://abbottnutrition.com/news/pres...ards&year=2010).
It sounds like you've had a lot of bacterial infections in the last 3 months. That makes me think that either the antibiotics you are taking are not knocking the bacteria out (in other words, you are infected with a strain of bacteria that is resistant to the antibiotics you have been taking), or there's a source of bacteria in your environment that is reinfecting you. I would ask your doctor to do a bacterial culture on you, andake sure you are taking the RIGHT antibiotic for your infection. I knew a mom who ended up with 6 months of repetitive mastitis infections because she was repeatedly prescribed the wrong antibiotics.
