Not sure if this is the correct place to post this.
I was diagnosed with possible Lymes disease. The drs. want me to take Cefuroxime Axetil (500 mg, 2x day for 2 weeks) just incase I have it. I found on websites the medicine is okay to take while breastfeeding. Our pediatrician & my lactating consultant said it is okay, but some will get in the breast milk.
My baby is 8 months old. I am still nervouse breastfeeding him while on the med. One dr said if I want I can store my milk and then give that to him while pumping & dumping. I'm still unsure about that. It will be a lot of milk to store in the freezer, if there is room. I feel the stored milk won't be fresh & it will be exhausting to give him a bottle, then pump & dump each time. But, I'm also scared that my baby will be getting some of the medication, and he's so young. Also, what if he gets a reaction from it.
I would love to get other opinions or, if someone else had this same experience, what they did. Should I partial feed and give partial stored milk? Or just bite the bullet and still feed from the breast every time so he gets fresh milk? I did start giving him solids at 6 months so he only feeds about 5-6 times a day.
I am not one to take medication unless absolutely necessary. I do need to act on this quickly, in case I do have lymes, so it does not get worse. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
