Hopefully there will be no effect if you just breastfed once. This is the information given regarding breastfeeding during taking levofloxacin.

Levofloxacin Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of levofloxacin into human milk. Levofloxacin is the L-isomer of ofloxacin which is excreted into human milk. Quinolone-induced cartilage erosion and arthropathies that have been observed in juvenile animals render some concern over its possible toxic effects on the developing joints of nursing infants. Because of the potential for serious adverse effects in nursing infants, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue administration of levofloxacin, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
