1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Zithromax is an antibiotic we can give to infants aged 3 months or older. Have not heard of any significant reason to stop breastfeeding just because mom is taking Azithromycin (zithromax).
.. Which means any changes seen in the baby are probably a coincidence and not caused by the small amounts of antibiotic in the breast milk.

You should check with a pediatrician, or your doctor for this.
Some medications can be secreted in breast milk and thus effect the baby.
