Allergies? Breastfeeding and considering antihistamines?

Spring and summer are high-allergy times for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate the symptoms. You may not know, however, that these antihistimines can also decrease or dry up breastmilk!  These medications are made to dry up secretions and fluids - it will not differentiate between the different body fluids and will commonly decrease breastmilk production.  So keep this in mind if you're thinking of resorting to those anti-histimines!

A helpful and effective alternative is the herb Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle).  Its fine for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, and is highly nutritious.  Many people swear by this herb to alleviate their allergy symptoms!   Homeopathy is also very effective in alleviating allergies!

Testimonial

After being in prodromal labor off and on for weeks while facing an upcoming induction, I decided to try the Labor Tincture. I was hoping to have a VBAC, and induction sounded daunting. Within 30 minutes of taking the tincture, my inconsistent contractions & prodromal labor kicked over to active labor - my contractions were so consistent and productive - and I had my ideal birth 6 hours later! The baby appeared perfect on the monitor the entire time & my contractions were stellar & consistent without any Pitocin! I highly recommend this product. Thank you Pam for making such incredible products & caring so much about your customers!  I am telling everyone I know!  L.O.
