My baby girl is 8 months old and EBF, however I feel very congested throat isn't sore but back of mouth seems to be. I honestly believe it's bad allergies. However, I hope it's not a cold, cause my 16 yr old came down with throat infection. I don't believe in taking meds since I'm breastfeeding my little one. However, I'm freaking out. Anyone e know safe natural remedies or safe homeopathic meds that are safe while I continue to nurse her. When I was pregnant I almost came down with a bad throat infection also and I packed on the OJ and cough drops with honey and chamomile with honey and lemon. I'm currently doing that again. But any other tips would greatly be appreciated. Oh by the way i don't have a milk stash and don't want to start her on formula at all. So please anything safe to use while nursing is appreciated once again.
