I was wondering about cold medicines to take while breastfeeding. Does anyone know if Nyquil is safe or not? I know it has alcohol, that's my biggest question. Thanks in advance!

The alcohol isn't a worry, but decongestants and antihisthamines can seriously reduce milk supply.

although kellymom.com does say they are safe, if you notice a change in supply stop using it.
