    Default Will Amoxicillin reduce my milk supply?

    Hi everyone,
    Just had a dental surgery done this morning and now I am on Amoxicillin. Will it decrease my milk supply? My baby's now 7 months old. Should I nurse her more often?
    thanks

    It should not have any effect on your supply. See here for more info on it
