Dh got sick with a sore throat/runny nose about a week ago, and now I'm sick with the same thing. He went to the doc today, was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and given antibiotics. Ds is 7 weeks old and does not seem to be sick yet.
Does anyone have advice on whether I should go to the doc and get antibiotics too? I'm worried about taking antibiotics while BF because I don't want to increase my chances of getting thrush. Does acidophilus help prevent thrush while on antibiotics?
I don't want Ds to get sick, but I don't want thrush either, so I'm not sure what to do - I don't mind suffering through being sick and not taking the antibiotics if it's better for Ds and BF.
Thanks for any advice!
