Cold medicine while breastfeeding

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I am presently plagued by a cold the likes of which I haven't seen since my student teaching days.  I was taking a homeopathic medicine for it, but I've always noticed a drop in my supply (baby is eating solids, so it's not a huge deal nor is it a huge drop).

 

Now I'm wondering if cold medicine while I'm breastfeeding is a good idea.

I think it's the decongestants that are a problem because they dry things up. I believe antihistamines and other cold medicines are probably ok.
Here's the page from Kellymom on cold medicines.
