In brief: Depends
Isoniazid is a category c medication (not enough data to show baby harming risks in humans and/or limited studies to show baby harming risks in animals) and considered "possibly unsafe" in lactation/breastfeeding.
The decision to use any medication must be informed and made after a careful evaluation of the risks and benefits. Only you and your doctor can answer this question.
