PMID:  15082839     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Antibiotic usage is fairly common among breastfeeding mothers and there is potential for transfer to infants through breast milk. While most medicines taken by lactating women cause no harm to their babies, at times it can result in serious consequences. This article reviews the principles governing transfer of maternal antibiotics to breast milk, its clinical significance, and ways to minimise inadvertent infant exposure.
