2-3 days at most: but since Azos are cleared well by the kidneys. Be sure to monitor the symptoms to make sure you have cleared the infection. These things tend to come back if not treated with a broader spectrum antibiotic. Good luck and congratulations on committing to breast feeding your baby.

Medications and risk: Safety has not been established during breastfeeding. Because it can cause methemoglobinemia, sulfhemoglobinemia, and hemolytic anemia, it should be avoided while breastfeeding, especially in infants less than one month of age. If the medication is taken for up to seven days, two days after completion is enough time to resume breastfeeding.
