I would get checked out first, just in case. I really am not sure and I wouldn't want to risk it, especially with you having a lot of swelling in your foot.

Try to identify the spider if it isn't too smushed! Brown recluses are notorious, among others, to seem harmless at first. Better safe than sorry?

For yourself, I would get checked. there is no need to stop breastfeeding.
