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!

Testimonial

I am using the Nursing Tea Moringa Blend and Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend.  I got them right after I caught a very bad stomach flu virus.  My milk supply had really decreased because I was so sick and dehydrated.  The tea and tincture have helped to get things back to normal.  I think without them, I might not have regained my regular supply.  I tried some other brand of nursing tea from the store before I purchased yours, and it did not help me at all and those other ones did not taste good either - your tea has a nice flavor and it works great!  Thank you!  J.M.
