Safe cold medications while nursing
I have a cold and I think it is moving into my chest. I have avoided any meds but think I need an OTC medication at this point. Any suggestions on what is safe to use? My son also has a lot of congestion but he is not taking anything - only using saline drops and nasal suction.
Re: Safe cold medications while nursing
kellymom.com has a good list of medications and their impact on breast-feeding. I think the basic principle is to try to take a single-purpose medication than a multi-purpose one, if you can.
Here's a link. http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/index.html
Hope you feel better!
