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

Your Pregnant Mother's Liver Tonic is saving me from so much uncomfortable late pregnancy edema (swelling) in my feet, hands, and tailbone! I think it may even ease the acid stomach issues (affecting bile production?) a bit. Love it!  B.V.
