In brief: Yes

I recommend not taking Flagyl aka Metronidazole while breast feeding during the first 2 months of life.

In brief: Yes

Usually yes, but it depends on the medication.
Be sure to talk with the prescribing physician about the exact medication, and make sure he or she knows you're nursing.
