I am taking an antibiotic for a root canal I'm having in two days. The first time I nursed after taking it, my son broke out in hives all over his body. His peditrician says I can't keep nursing him while taking the drug, and the dentist says I cannot stop taking the antibiotic because I can't have the oral surgery without completing it. We could try another one, but he may simply not be able to tolerate any at his age (4 mos).
So, I guess my only option is to try to give my son formula for two days. I used a little banked milk to mix in with the first few bottles, but I'm really worried.
(1) How can I help my son accept the formula bottles for the next few days (He does take bottles of expressed milk already)?
(2) Am I going to have trouble getting him back on the breast after two-three days of formula?
