Anti-Histimines and breast milk production

Spring is the time of allergies for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate your suffering. 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! 

Testimonial

I’ve so enjoyed reading the newsletters and incredibly valuable information found on your website!

The Hem Stopper Tincture is my go-to for excess bleeding. I really can’t believe how well it helps stop bleeding.

I give Iron Tonic to all my mamas who are in need of blood building support. Recently I had a 30 week client tell me how much energy she’s now feeling after taking Iron Tonic for just a few days.

I’ve also had a mama use Itch Soother with excellent results. I’m excited to have my clients try more Herb Lore remedies!

Thank you Herb Lore for all you do to support midwives and families during the childbearing year!
