    Default Seasonal allergies

    I have bad seasonal allergies. I was on shots for 5 years. I took a year off then developed allergy induced asthma. I was just re starting shots when I decided to get pregnant and thus had to stop. Three questions:

    What can I do for allergies for myself while ebf?
    Can I get shots safely while ebf?
    Will my baby get immunity to ragweed, grass pollen
    And tree pollen through my breast milk?

    This article doesn't speak specifically to your questions, but it's one of the best resources I have found on breastfeeding and immune system development: http://www.americanscientist.org/iss...food-allergies
