Cold medicine while BF'ing?

(3 posts)(3 voices)
  1. Is there any cold medicines I can take while BF'ing? I have a terrible cold and really need some good sleep tonight. Going on my third day of being on my own and DH will finally be home tonight, so I *could* take something. B sleeps from about 7-6am, so with that in mind, can I even take something like Nyquil? What about during the day?

    I am assuming I just need to wait it out, but if there is anything I could take, oh the relief!


  2. Check, it's a great breastfeeding resource for stuff like this. Benadryl is safe to take. If you have a cough try taking some honey. Saline drops are safe. Stay away from sudafed, it can dry up your supply.

    Good luck. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Most nasal sprays are fine, too, to clear up a stuffy nose.
