Can I take Dayquil while I'm BFing? I've got a cold and I'm getting achey. Roomies have the flu. So, kosher or no?

You could take a serious hit to your supply and I'm not sure it's even safe.

No, Robotussim is the stuff I think they recommended while I was pregnant and BFing.

Also, there is something called a shower soother (it's a tablet found in the cold isle that you stick in the shower while you are taking a shower). It works wonders, I swear.

Nope. Kelly mom has a list of the same meds while nursing.

Thank you ladies. I opted not to take anything, to be on the safe side. When my SO comes home from work, I'm going to have him run me to CVS so I can ask the pharmacist.

I was wondering the same too... Been having allergies and colds for a month now... :( The doctor said no medications for me... I just use zyrtec eye drops whenever my eyes are puffy... :cry: and oh yeah, I take chewable vitamin C... :)
