Antibiotics given during breastfeeding seem to be generally okay, although they pass into breast milk in different amounts. There are also antibiotics during administration that are advised to stop breastfeeding.
The effects on the baby may be soft stool or diarrhea, but these are temporary, ceasing when you stop taking antibiotics.
It matters a lot and for what type of infection your antibiotics have been recommended, so ask your doctor or pharmacist about the effect of these breastfeeding drugs.

Antibiotics, recommended only by the doctor
Antibiotics are recommended only by the doctor, and in pharmacies they are only issued with a prescription.

In general, antibiotics from the penicillin class, such as amoxicillin or ampicillin, may be recommended during pregnancy. However, they pass into breast milk and there is a risk of allergies or intestinal transit problems in infants.
In the case of mastitis, however, antibiotics and constant emptying of the breasts are recommended, so a visit to your doctor is required.

Inflammation decreases milk production
Usually, any inflammatory disease causes a decrease or even a disappearance of milk production. Even if lactation returns, it is possible that breast milk produced by your body no longer provides the nutrient needed for your baby.
