Allergies? Breastfeeding and considering antihistamines?

Spring and summer are high-allergy times for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate the symptoms. You may not know, however, that these antihistimines can also decrease or dry up breastmilk!  These medications are made to dry up secretions and fluids - it will not differentiate between the different body fluids and will commonly decrease breastmilk production.  So keep this in mind if you're thinking of resorting to those anti-histimines!

A helpful and effective alternative is the herb Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle).  Its fine for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, and is highly nutritious.  Many people swear by this herb to alleviate their allergy symptoms!   Homeopathy is also very effective in alleviating allergies!

Testimonial

I started buying the Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend because I was having big problems breastfeeding my first baby. By the time I tried your product I had been working with a lactation consultant and tried various other products...nothing was really working...until a neighbor suggested your tincture. We tried it and it worked!  He nursed until he was 4 years old (he is now almost 13, 5'.9" and very healthy). I later tandem nursed him and my second baby while pregnant with my third son.  So very grateful for you!  DG
