Anyone know if couch medicine is safe while BFing?
I have a 15mo who still nurses quite a lot and after we all battled the stomach flu here, I have now developed a drippy nose and tickly cough. In the past, this kind of nasal drip w/ cough has led to a very persistent cough with bronchial inflammation (this has happened to me at least 3 or 4 times in winters past). When this has happened the only way to get rid of it has been codiene cough syrup at night along with a heavy duty antihistamine and then the use of a steriod inhaler during the day to keep my airways open. Is any of this going to be doable while BFing???
I assume the the inhaler is out, but what about the cough meds and antihistamines?
Any other advice on getting rid of such a cough?
