Airborne and breastfeeding?

Does anyone know if it is safe to take Airborne while breastfeeding (and still taking prenatals) I feel a cold coming on and typically grab an airborne at the first symptom but am not sure if I should. Of course it says on the bottle "if pregnant or nursing as a physician" I have a midwife appt in a week and a half but it will be too late by then LOL anyone know?

just call your midwife and ask or go to kelly mom and see. That website is the best! Up your Vitamin C to like 3,000mg/day (1,000mg TID) (per my holistic DR at one time) and it will "spill over" into your milk and your baby will get it too. If you get loose stools/slight diarrhea then back off. Of course ask your midwife first . Hope you feel better soon!

If I do this will it help my LO. I am fine and don't have a cold but my nursling has been struggling bad for going on two weeks. No fever or anything just congestion. Will this help him?
