I have just started a course of anti biotics to treat a very painful leg infection. I was bitten by a horse fly on Sunday and didn't really think to do anything about it (all the shops were closed to buy anti histemines, and I had never reacted badly before) and it went very red and inflamed and has now spread across my whole calf, making it tricky to sleep, walk etc. Anyway, I told the doctor I was breastfeeding and he said it was fine to take the pills as I am only feeding LO 3 times a day as she is 10 months. However this afternoon, just a couple of hours after I had taken the first tablet, she did the most explosive nappy ever and we've had another one since. I have to take these pills for a week so I am feeling really bad about the prospect of her having a dodgy stomach for all that time. I know how grotty antibiotics make me (and my tummy!) and the thought that she'll have the same discomfort is awful. Does anyone know of anything that I can give her to help? I'd ideallly like to stop feeding her myself while I'm taking them, but unfortunately she won't take a bottle. I'm really cross that the doc said she would be fine, when clearly they affected her very quickly and very severley.
