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

Hi Pam,  I’ve used several of your products throughout six of my pregnancies and postpartum. The Pregnancy Tea Tincture and the Pregnant Mother’s Liver Tonic have been such a blessing! One of your products that I ALWAYS have on hand is the Poke Root. During nursing, it is an amazingly fast acting herb to heal mastitis. At the teeniest sign of a clogged duct, I take just a tiny amount of the Poke Root and it clears up in no time! I recommend all nursing mommas have it on hand. Such an amazing product!!! J.F.
