I hoping someone else has has experience with taking sudafed while nursing.
I've been sick the for more than a week and I didn't initially have to take any medication. Until about 4 days ago when I had a fever of 104 which would not break. I had to alternate between Tylenol and advil per my doc. I did that for about 3 days and my supply has dropped a lot since. My fever is finally gone so I stopped taking the tylenol and advil for about half a day now. Supply is still bad.
Anyways, I still feel super congested and my ears won't pop... Feel like I just got off a plane. It's been like this for almost 2 days. My doc suggested claritin-D but also said it would reduce my supply.
I read on kellmom that a decongestant I could take safely would be like sudafed. Should I try it? I don't want my supply to drop even more.
Also, do you think the Tylenol and/or Advil reduced my supply? Or just the mere fact that i was so sick.
My LO is almost 6 months.
Thanks ! Appreciate any thoughts!
