Express you milk with your hands, everyday, within 3-4 days it will settle down.

Firstly check with a lactation consultant, they know what medications are safe and can suggest alternative medications . you might be able to breastfeed. i suggest that you only give breast milk and not formula.

u btr squeeze out ur milk...or els it might lead u to get fever....

Ruth Malik

If you don't breastfeed your milk flow will simply stop. you won't get a fever. fevers are caused by viruses or infections. If you want to continue breastfeeding you need to squeeze out the milk so that the supply continues for when you return to feeding. You could get a breast pump. however please consult a lactation consultant, it would be best if you can simply continue to breastfeed.

Thanku so much ladies.. so should I buy brest pump bcoz I didn't use that or squeezing will work..

Ruth Malik

whatever is most comfortable for you. call the lactation consultant. or ask on the Facebook group breastfeeding for indian mums or the group la leche league india. I really hope you can breastfeed even on this medication or maybe another safe medication can be suggested.

you should breastfeed...even with medicines on...
