i need a sleep remedy, and i am allergic to chamomile. i bought some calmes forte, which is homeopathic and posted about it a couple weeks ago on the breastfeeding board and got no answer, so hoping for one here. is it safe for nursing moms? i just need something to help me settle down at night that is non addictive and doesnt literally "knock" me out, since i cosleep and need to be able to wake easily in the night. The Calmes stuff seems to be just the thing but says to consult a Dr if nursing. i also clench my jaw alot and am hoping it will help relax me a little more at night to stop that problem, cuz i get alot of headaches. thanks for any info!

No answers here, stirringleaf, but I'm nursing and taking Calms Forte too so I'm interested in an answer if anybody's got one.

BTW, the label says it contains "Chamomilla 2X (Chamomile) - for nervous irritability" so if you're really allergic to it, you might wanna proceed w/ caution...

I'm allergic to chammomile, but have no reactions to calms forte OR the teething tablets, which are a lifesaver when we have no calms forte.

My FP actually recommended them during pregnancy and nursing - his wife is a homeopath and used them throughout both her pregnancies and EBF.

I used Hylands Insomnia remedy while nursing and it worked wonders! (it's for insomnia w/ restlessness)not sure what's in it though. wish I could be more help. hope you find something that works for you!

Blissful Mama to DD-(5), DS-(6) and someone new due in November!

ohh wonderful, i will use it tonight. i was up till 2 AM last night, and i just want to stop that!

i was a little worried about the chamomile when i saw in there, but thought maybe since its homeopathic i woulndt react. sounds promising.
