This is an interesting situation, because your doctor should have prescribed you something else (or at least went over the user guidelines) if he knew you were breastfeeding.

The user guidelines for this medication note:
Do not use Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim if you are pregnant. Try to prevent becoming pregnant while you are taking it. If you think you may be pregnant, contact your doctor right away. Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim is found in breast milk. Do not breast-feed while taking Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim.

Further indications state the following:
The average milk levels obtained after trimethoprim 160 mg twice a day range from 1.8 to 2 mcg/mL between two and three hours after dosing. No adverse effects of trimethoprim on nursing infants have been reported.

Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole are excreted into human milk. The manufacturer considers the use of trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole to be contraindicated in breast-feeding women. The American Academy of Pediatrics considers the drug compatible with breast-feeding if the infant is healthy and full-term. Breast-feeding should be abstained if the infant is premature, ill, hyperbilirubinemic, or G6PD-deficient. Because sulfonamides may cause kernicterus in infants less than 2 months of age, a decision should be made to discontinue (or substitute) drug therapy or discontinue nursing based on the importance of the drug to the mother.

I hope you are able to get this situation figured out. Definitely consider contacting your doctor if any of the above contraindications apply to you or your baby.
