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!

Testimonial

Your supplements have been wonderful for helping me increase my breastmilk production. Shatavari, in particular, shouldn’t be called the herbal Domperidone because it’s better than Domperidone. I’m on Domperidone too, and have had really horrible side effects. I’ve been slowly weaning off over 4 months (3 weeks to go! Hooray!). When I decrease my dose my milk supply temporarily goes down, unless I religiously take the Shatavari and then it’s fine!  I’ve taken just about every milk-increasing product out there, and Herb Lore products have worked the best!  A.O.
