I'm coming down with flu , DD is 2 weeks old. Without baby I would take 5000-6000 of vit. C and go drown gradually taking it 3 x day. Can I do that while breastfeeding? If not any alternative vit. C schemes?
High dose vitamin C?
Vitamin C, especially in the form of sodium ascorbate, is very effective. You can absolutely do it while nursing. The only thing I'd caution is that when you hit your tolerance (and you may hit it sooner than you think and have to slowly back off), it will likely give you diarrhea, so you'll want to stay hydrated for your supply. :)
