    I took benedryl while pregnant and still take it occasionally while nursing. I heard it can dry up your supply but I have NEVER had that problem. Just talk to your doctor, I am sure they will reassure you that it's fine to take it.

    I would say that it is safe, I was able to take benadryl while pregnant

    Ladies--just a reminder that we can NEVER assume something is safe for nursing because it was safe for pregnancy or vice versa. In many cases it is true, but there are a few noted exceptions. The medication should be checked for it's safety during lactation if you are nursing.
