    Hello. What exactly do you mean by uti? Do you have pain when you urinate? Do you have vaginal discharge or itching?

    Urinary tract infection, started with abdominal pains and a sensation when i pee, have had it before, 2 years ago. I was given Zinnat 500 mg then, don't know if its safe to use same now since I am breastfeeding ( baby is actually a year old)

    That's fine. Your baby is big now. The best thing for you to do is a proper test to know the organism causing it. I would recommend you do a urine mcs test. This will prevent you using an antibiotic the infection is resistant to.

    i Am hoping to go for a test over the weekend, but I was hoping I could use the Zinnat until the weekend when I am able to see the doctor. i was just being concerned for my baby, not knowing if it would be harmful to him.

    Zinnat is safe for breastfeeding. The infection won't affect your baby. However I would prefer you do a proper test first. Hope I've been of help.
