Is Zicam safe to take while breastfeeding?

I caught a cold yesterday and I am nursing my 5 month old...  and I was wondering if Zicam was safe to take while breastfeeding? I called the OB department at the hospital but they said that since it's so new they didn't have a record of whether it was safe or not. I thought that since it's homeopathic that it was safe to take, but I wanted to be totally sure about it.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

yes it's just Zinc.

Yep.

I took it a few weeks ago... we both are fine. :)
