  • I WOULD NOT TAKE ANYTHING WITHOUT CHECKING WITH A DOCTOR. EVERYTHING GOES RIGHT TO BREAST MILK.

  • Check with your Dr. first. My Dr gave the ok over the phone for short term Benadryl use when I had an allergic reaction to something.

  • Yes. Avoid anything with pseudoephedrine, as it can sometimes dry up milk. Most other allergy meds are safe.
