Allergies and nursing help!

I am nursing my 6 month old and have the worse allergies ever! Itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing!! I can't take it anymore. I have been dipping into some childrens benedryl we had for ds but I only use it when iam at my worse and right after I feed dd. It works a little but not good enough. Was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if so what did they do for relief? Thinking about going to allergist but I know all they can do is give me meds I don't want to take.

Re: Allergies and nursing help!

I am on OTC generic zyrtec and have been for years. My doctor said it is fine to take when pregnant or nursing. I am almost exclusively pumping and freeze anywhere from 15-30 ounces a day over what the baby eats, so in my experience it has no effect on supply.

I take Zyrtec too and no problems. I think it might have a small effect on my supply but not enough to even have to supplement. And it's seriously worth it.

You could also try a nettipot if you are really opposed to meds.
