If the baby is only about a month old the mother should be able to get her milk supply back....if she wants to try to breastfeed the baby. There are meds that her doctor can prescribe to increase her milk production. She could also try just regular pumping to get her body back into the mode of making milk. She won't be on medication for her infection for very long so she can just pump and dump until she is free of the offending meds. She should talk to her doctor and a lactation consultant about how she can best get her own milk supply back. This is by far not impossible for her to do.

She may also want to check into breast milk banks. Other women supply the milk to the banks (kind of like a blood bank) and her doctor (probably pediatrician) can order the milk. This method is used when babies are allergic to most forms of formula. Not a cheap alternative, but it's better than the baby suffering.

Hope you all find the best solution very soon.
