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 just wanted to rave about one of your products I've been using!  I ordered the Skullcap Tincture.  I have so much trouble sleeping during pregnancy, from hip pain to insomnia to headaches - something usually keeps me awake.  I was originally getting some for my mother, but decided to try it myself as well.  I've been using it for 3-4 weeks now (often, but not every night) and I've been getting the best, most restful sleep I've ever gotten during pregnancy!  With my last pregnancy, I even ended up sleeping on the floor most nights.  Not this time - I'm sleeping like a baby!  Thanks!  S.M.
