is this safe?

Is it safe to use doterra on guard oil while breastfeeding? My baby is one month old and I have what I believe to be a sinus infection. I would be putting the oil on my feet and possibly neck because my neck is really sore from being sick.

Yes it is safe for you to use as long as its not on your breasts. It is not safe for him though, and especially since he is so young, I would not suggest using it around him. Put some on your feet and wash your hands before you pick him up or anything.

Also, there is no better remedy for a sinus infection than breast milk nose drops. Seriously.
Feel better!

I've been wanting to try this but I can never get milk out when I think about it. My pump is in storage.

Have you tried hand expression? You only need one or two squirts, and you should be able to do that easily with your hands.

My milk regulated really well with this baby, so when I squeeze nothing comes out. I guess if I do it right before a feeding I should be able to get enough. With my second baby I was always leaking, but not with this one.

Turns out I have strep throat, so instead of oil I'm now on penicillin.

I bought activia yogurt. The pharmacist recommended it, so hopefully it keeps thrush away!
