Herbal cold remedies?? [Mar. 5th, 2006|07:32 pm]
Women or mothers that are "crunchy" or natural.


Ok, so I have the beginning of a cold- and I am SUPER stuffed up. I am taking my vitamins, drinking orange juice, Using vapo rub so I can breathe a little...
But What can I take thats safe while breastfeeding to help the dang stuffiness?? I am pretty sure that most of the OTC cold meds decrease milk production..
Any suggestions??
Drinking lots of water and warm tea to try and flush this out.. and I took a hot shower for the steam factor..

I know the Sudafed can cause decrease in milk production. If you don't have a problem with milk production you can take it. Benadryl can work too I believe. I am at a loss for any other type of meds. I think if you check some Vitamin stores online they could help you find something.

I'd suggest Olbas Oil and some good old fashioned rest :)
