Please does anyone know if you can take throat coat tea by traditional medicinal while breastfeeding? It says not to while pregnant or breastfeeding but I really would like some! I will have to look up each individual herb maybe? Thanks for any advice!

I cannot tell you that it is safe but I know that most herbal remedies have to state legally that they are not safe while pregnant or breastfeeding simply as they do not have the funding for sufficient studies. I did look up the individual herbs while pregnant and then decided based on the effects those herbs could have. Now while breastfeeding, I do drink most herbal teas without worrying too much (and I love the throat coat tea!). The only teas I stay away from are teas that have major detoxifying properties as those toxins go straight into your breastmilk and amniotic fluid.

go to www.kellymom.com and look up herbs. That site will know for sure what you can and cannot take.
