Dear firesheep,

The doctors will tell you if the mother should or not breastfeed the baby. Until the antibiotics are completely cleared out of her system breastfeeding might be contraindicated. In such cases only doctors are competent enough to suggest anything.

Wish you all the best.
Regards, John.
