Antibitotics and breast feeding,

Hi, my name is Diana and am due to have my little boy any day now. I do plan on breastfeeding.

However, I am on an antibiotic called cephalexin and wasn't sure if I can breastfeed him once he is born if I happen to be still taking it.
I was told that it is safe during pregancy, but that a small amount does go through the milk while breastfeeding.

Really upset that I even have to take antibiotics right before I deliver.

Thanks for the help.
