Spring, Allergies & Breastfeeding

Sneezing, headache, itchy throat and feeling all things allergies? I hear you!

Always discuss any medications (or herbals) with your Doctor and IBCLC before taking anything.

When selecting allergy medication stay away from the 'D' as in DECONGESTANT.

Generally preferred allergy medications while lactating Claritin (Loratadine), Zyrtex (Cetirizine), Allegra (Cetirizine). Eye drops typically compatible as well as nasal sprays or gels --->>check with your Doctor and IBCLC.
