I am two weeks PP and i think im coming down with something. :( Im congested with a stuffy nose, feeling light headed and have diahrea. TMI sorry. Im breastfeeding so i was wondering what safe things i can take to help. Im already exhausted taking care of DS that has acid reflux, i dont want to loose more energy from being sick nor do i want to loose my supply or have it effect LO

Try to avoid decongestants like Benadryl and Claritin. This site is very helpful!

Vitamin C, garlic, oil of oregano, colloidal silver, B vitamins (your body uses up your vitamin B when under stress)...
Hope you feel better soon!
