    Default Antibiotics - can they cause thrush for bub?

    I have to take a course of antibiotics as I have an infected hand but have put off taking them as I am scared its going to affect feeding my bub.
    Can antibiotics cause nipple thrush etc etc?
    I know I have to take them to get better but I don't want my breastfeeding stopped in anyway. Bub is 6 months old.
    Chemist said it won't cross in the milk but I am paranoid of thrush for some reason.

    Not for bub but maybe for you. Can you take a probiotic?

    Try taking some probiotics just in case and it will help you as well

    So you take the probiotic after the antibiotic or with it? Now I am nervous about getting nipple thrush

    Not sure, I'd check with the pharmacist. I'd normally take them at least an hour apart but can't say you must do this- it's just what i do

    You might not get thrush, but if you are concerned definitely take probiotics. That is what I would do in your situation.

    Thanks ladies, sorry I meant do you take the probiotic after you have taken the whole course of antibiotics or do you take them whilst you are having the antibiotic??
