Yes: Ampicillin is commonly used in newborn infants when infection is suspected or confirmed, and so trace amounts that would appear in your breast milk if you were to take the same or related Rx is safe for your infant and better than interrupting your breast feeding, or worse, not taking medication that your doctor feels is important for you
