Summary of Use during Lactation:


Although no information is available on the use of cefdinir during breastfeeding, cephalosporins are generally not expected to cause adverse effects in breastfed infants. Occasionally, disruption of the infant's gastrointestinal flora, resulting in diarrhea or thrush, has been reported with cephalosporins, but these effects have not been adequately evaluated. Cefdinir is acceptable to use during breastfeeding.
