I have a healthy 13 month old boy. He was not premature. I am in the process of weaning him. He eats at least 2-3 full meals of solid foods plus about a cup of soy milk and a cup of diluted juice a day. He nurses more for comfort than anything. At this point, can I take Bactrim for a Urinary infection?
Breastfeeding Magazine Response: Bactrim, which is the antibiotic Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (also called Septra,) is generally safe to be used when breastfeeding. However, it should be avoided if a child is younger than two months old because it can increase bilirubin levels in some infants.
Since your beautiful little boy is older, he will be fine!
