I am now suffering from a doozy of a cold - nose is stuffed up, eyes are watering, etc.
Last week, my doctor put me on an antibiotic (Amoxicillin) for my bacterial pharyngitis. Since then, the cold has come on.
I called my OBGYN and chatted with a nurse there about what types of meds I can take that WON'T affect my milk production. She said that any decongestant or anti-histamine COULD (and most likely would) cause my production to go down.
I have used a netipot. I am using nasal spray. They are easing the horrifying discomfort I had yesterday.
Any other suggestions? I don't want to affect my milk to the point that baby isn't getting what he needs, but I also need to breathe so I can sleep and function for the rest of my family.
What do you/have you done to take care of these issues?
