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 wanted to let you know that Mullein has been a lifesaver! I am so grateful for your products!  I was on week 3 of bronchitis and having to use my inhaler several times a day.  I didn't want to use the anti-inflammatory the doctor prescribed and was trying to minimize how much cough syrup I was taking.  Within a dose or two of Mullein, I no longer needed my inhaler and my cough was almost gone!  Thank you thank you thank you for your amazing products!  A.P.
