The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) recommends that you "Take Your Antimalarial While Breastfeeding."
The CDC states further that: "If you are breastfeeding, a very small amount of antimalarial will be passed into your breast milk. This small amount of drug will neither harm your infant nor be enough to protect him or her against malaria. Infants need to be given their own antimalarial medicine. Recommended antimalarial dosages for infants and children are listed in fax document number 380012 and at http:\\www.cdc.gov\travel\mal_kids_pub.htm."
