1. I have a REALLY bad cold, and can hardly breathe. (Have you ever been so congested you can't swallow? Yeah, that's me.) I was just wondering what cold medicines (preferably non-drowsy) that are safe to take while breastfeeding.
2. My 12 week-old baby has recently started sleeping an 8-9 hour stretch at night. I, of course, wake up really full and NEED him to nurse by the time he wakes up! However, I have so much milk by then that he can't even finish one side. Up until today, I have been pumping out the extra after he eats, but I don't want to have to do that. So, today I just let him eat until he was full, and stuck it out until the next time he needed to eat. I am STILL very full, but not as full. My question is, when a baby starts sleeping through the night, will my body eventually realize that it does not need to produce that much milk at night if I don't pump?
THANKS in advance!
