We are just starting to see signs of the flu in our house- with the first of our six kids showing signs of it. I usually take SA medicinally, does anyone know if larger doses are safe while breastfeeding (short term)? Thanks in advance.

SA is sodium ascorbate, a buffered vitamin C.

 

Sodium ascorbate is safe to give directly to infants, so it is definitely safe to take while breastfeeding. Plus only a little gets through to the breast milk.
