"Airborne" and Elderberry When Nursing?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Is Airborne safe to take when nursing? How about Elderberry? I couldn't find anything on kellymom.com about them.

DH, DS, and I are all suffering from a cold we've given each other. DH bought some herbs (Lemon Balm, Reishi, Elderberry) for himself and my mom is coming over today with some Airborne, and I'm not sure what I can take.

I'm not concerned about the herbs affecting milk supply (not really an issue for me), but I am concerned about safety.

Anyone know anything about these?

TIA...

Hey Mama,
Whats airborne?? (I've never heard of it)


( for you) Elderberry is fine/safe to take while nursing...Elder is very mild, and is a general for colds/flu etc.


Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks so much for the Elderberry info... The Airborne site is here: http://www.airbornehealth.com/ for those who are interested. Anyone have any info on it?

I am currently pregnant and nursing dd1... when I had a bad cold last month, my midwife suggested taking Airborne... so, there's at least one trusted (to me at least) opinion that it is okay.

I take it like crazy when I'm feeling a cold coming on- never had any problems.
