    Default Safe cold medications while nursing

    I have a cold and I think it is moving into my chest. I have avoided any meds but think I need an OTC medication at this point. Any suggestions on what is safe to use? My son also has a lot of congestion but he is not taking anything - only using saline drops and nasal suction.

    Thanks!

    kellymom.com has a good list of medications and their impact on breast-feeding. I think the basic principle is to try to take a single-purpose medication than a multi-purpose one, if you can.

    Here's a link. http://www.kellymom.com/health/meds/index.html
    Hope you feel better!
