    Hi - I have ADD and I am still nursing my 5th babe who is 6 mths old but lately I am having a really hard time with my ADD. I really don't want to stop nursing- I nurse to at least a year and beyond but I need to be able to take some medications. I know I can't take any prescribed meds is there anything herbal that is safe to take while nursing that may help with my ADD? Thanks

    I personally don't have any recommendations. But I would suggest that you speak to your doctor. Give them the heads up before you go in, tell them that you're breast feeding and you need medications that can work around your needs. That way they'll have some time to make some inquiries.

    i consider myself borderline ADD... do you just get real fidgety while your nursing? could you maybe have a little hand held game to play or something?

    i watch tv or get on the lap top a lot while i nurse

    Oh - here's the one useful thing I can give you (besides a ). Check out any meds (not herbals, unfortunately) in Dr. Thomas Hale's "Medications and Mother's Milk" to get the lowdown on how they work with your LO & nursing. Your local LLLeader should have a copy, so you can call her (or just get it from the library).

    Good luck, mama!
