The same day I start amoxicillin .. my 5.5 mo old DD breaks out in head-to-toe red blotches and it is very similar to when her older sister had to take amox a few years ago and broke out in similar looking rash.
My ped said the chances are really low bec so little comes through the milk..but says it IS possible...but it can also be heat rash (but since it is on her face, he is not so sure), or she could be coming down with something...My mommy instinct is telling me that it is a reaction to the meds.
So I pumped and dumped for 24 hrs, switched meds (Z-pack) and my DH gave my DD bottles from my freezer stash. The rash didn't get better but it didn't get worse.
But today I started to BF again bec I was told the amox would be out of my system by now... and she has been irritable all day and takes small cat naps and is cranky when she is awake and not latched.
And the rash/blotches are still very much there, everywhere!
I don't know what to do?!?! Did i resume breastfeeding too early?
Anyone experience this before?
I can use some support from BTDT mamas
