    I'm taking that right now. My Dr. told me it was save to take while BF (that and I didn't see any warning on the label about BF like my first UTI prescription). I was drinking tons of water and cranberry before this and it really helped as well.

    We got thrush - horrid to get rid of! Plus LO was upset as it made her more windy and her nappies green for a good few weeks. So I'd try water and cranberry, definitely.
