    Default Dayquil & Milk Supply?

    I see on Amazon.com that Dayquil is "probably safe but may supress milk supply." Has anybody observed these affects or ? How much of a suppression are we possibly talking about? I have about 200 oz in the freezer if I needed to supplement for a few days, but my supply would come back, right??????

    I'm REALLY feeling badly, and can't even rest properly. I wouldn't take Nyquil due to the fact that we co-sleep, but Dayquil??

    Last night was brutal even though my LO slept nicely. Today at work isn't much better.

    how old is your baby?

    IF they are taking in some solids I wouldn't worry too much.

    take as little as you need to feal beter.
    And here is a link with some more natural things you might not have tried.

    She's 7.5 months old. I've been trying to get her to take solids, but it's not going so well.

    I will check out the Kellymom link.

    As it is, I barely pump enough during the day to cover her at day care - usually I don't. Lately I've been close thanks to fenugreek.

    Thank you!
