    Question Zink and breastfeeding

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows about taking Zink while bf. I am travelling soon and always seem to get sick along the way. I was thinking about starting to take some zink beforehand in order to prevent whatever I could pick up in the plane. Any ideas? Thanks

    Hey there- one of the most renound (sp?) doctors that works with medications and breasfeeding is Dr Thomas Hale ~ here's his website - do check it out if you get a chance - there;s lots of info there on herbal supplements, RX meds and more!! He's not a super big fan of herbal and the like but he has great info none the less. good luck! maybe someone will come along and give more info for what you're looking for!

    The only thread he has at this time about zinc is here:

    And on an aside - I prefer Echinacea to keep the germies at bay - it works for us!
    here's what he had to say about echinacea:
