As I mentioned in the blog I posted earlier, I was sick the past two days and is still as I write this. I visited the clinic near our office about three times just today and saw two different doctors. Scary huh? The pain is still there. I can feel it as I type now. It’s starting again. I really don’t like getting sick. I hate it even more when the doctor starts telling me that I should start taking antibiotics.
As most of you know, I’m still breastfeeding Ayex, who is now 2 years and 3 months old. And we, breastfeeding moms, know that antibiotics or some of its amount are transferred to the milk, which may not be good for the baby. This is my dilemma every time I will get sick. I compromise with my attending physician if they can give me something else as I cannot stop breastfeeding Ayex because she still refuses formula milk until now. I am very fortunate that there are some antibiotics that are safe for babies or that by the time I will taking them, I feel better.
I hope I will get better with the medication my doctors gave me today and that I will not have to take the antibiotics.
