  • Yes, even if you are allergic and had a reaction it would not have any effect on your milk- you can not pass on your allergic reaction. Also, benadryl is perfectly safe to take while BF just be careful, too much of it will cause a drop in your milk supply.

  • You can always call the pediatrician office to be sure . . . a nurse there should be able to give you a quick yes or no.
