Re: Breastfeeding after 10 days of doxycycline antibiotic
You should be able to maintain supply if you pump enough. You will need to use a good pump (not just a hand pump!) and pump about as often as your baby would nurse, or even more frequently. Aim for about 2-3 hours MAXIMUM in between pumping sessions. Don't wait to "fill up" before you pump- every time you can feel yourself getting full when not nursing, your body is getting the message that there isn't much demand and it will reduce supply.
If your supply dips while you are exclusively pumping, don't feel like that's an irretrievable loss. Once you are nursing again, your supply should rebound rapidly.
Finally, please contact the Infant Risk Center (http://www.infantrisk.com/) for a definitive answer about whether or not you absolutely need to avoid nursing while on doxy. Many women are given overconservative advice concerning the use of antibiotics during breastfeeding.
