Hi. I'm Dr. Lee and will do my best to help.
Hello? Are you there?
Looks like you are offline. I will switch to Q&A session.
Hi. Unless there is a real need to use metronidazole (Flagyl) for the mother, I would suggest to not use it. There is a small potential for tumorigenicity, consider using alternative therapy or switching to milk replacer for nursing patients. But of course, if there is a true need to use it because of infections such as giardia, so that the benefits outweights the risks, then it should be used.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks.
