QUICK! Can I take Nyquil while I'm nursing?

DS is a year old (in 2 weeks), and I'm REALLY congested. We have had a miserable day of trying to be friendly while we ALL feel terrible, and I just want to take some nyquil and go to sleep.

He sleeps in his own crib, but he will be calling me for nursing around 3:30-4:00. (10 pm now)

I would say no. only because decongestant can dry up your supply (I doubt just one dose, but it still could happen) plus the alcohol in it.... I'd steer clear and just go with nose spray

I think I'm gonna try it . . . NO supply issues here, and I think ds is beginning to self-wean anyway. I'll let you know how it goes . . . .
