ooooh! btdt. Stick to the soy green tea lattes. Very yummy iced!

To answer your question though... www.kellymom.com has a list of safe things to take when you are bfing. If you need more info, pick up a copy of Dr. Hale book, Medication and Mother's Milk.

Dr. Thomas Hale is known as the expert on the safety of medications during breastfeeeding. You can check out the Breastfeeding and Medications Forums at his website http://neonatal.ttuhsc.edu/lact/ to find info. about different medications.
He is the author of the Medications and Mother's Milk book as well. All La Leche League Leaders have access to the information in this book because they either own an up-to-date copy or have access to a supporting Leader who does. So, if you can't find the info. you need on the website, definitely find the number of a local Leader at their website www.llli.org and give her a call. She can give you any information you need about medications.

homeopathics are a safe choice. nux vomica works great when ya overdo it.

I have the new 2006 edition of Medications and Mother's Milk, if anybody needs me to look something up! It is a great book, Dr. Hale is awesome! He actually has his pratice here in Amarillo. I take his book with me to every doctors appointment I have, because I have found most doctors, unless they work specificly with lactating women, don't know what is and is not safe to take while nursing.
