This is somewhat embarrassing but I have bacterial vaginosis, and need to take the oral antibiotic metronidazole (Flagyl).
The nurse at my OBGYN office told me I can't nurse while I'm taking this medicine.
My DS is almost 21 months and I am okay with weaning but doing it cold turkey to take this medicine doesn't sound like a good idea to me. At the same time I need to get rid of these symptoms and clear up the infection but I don't want to just cut him off cold turkey. We are only nursing at nap time and bed time and occasionally early in the morning when he first wakes up. He is very attached to his "nom noms" and gets very upset and inconsolable when he can't have mama milk.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
