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!

Testimonial

I know I keep saying this, but I'm still so very thankful for all of the help the herbs have been with breastfeeding!  Two weeks ago, I packed away my pump and bottles.  I don't need them anymore!  That has never EVER happened before with my other babies!  I'm just beyond thrilled!  So thank you again!  It almost makes me want to have another baby someday, knowing I can breastfeed with ease now!  B.K.
