Thread: nursing and cold medicine timeline question.

  1. #1

    Post nursing and cold medicine timeline question.

    My daughter is 2 1/2 months old. ive been nursing and supplementing with formula. i started to develop a sore throat and stuffyness a couple nights ago. today i bit the bullet and took some dayquil.

    How long after i stop taking cold meds can ii start nursing again. plan on the pump and dump until then. i do have some milk stored that i can give her in the meantime.

    There are a few meds that you can take while you're nursing, Kellymom has a great article http://kellymom.com/bf/can-i-breastf...s/cold-remedy/ that goes through what you can/cannot take. I'd hate to see you pump and dump if there's something you can safely take!
