So this mama has terrible seasonal allergies. What I’ve found over the past few days is that if I want to feel just ok, I have to stay completely indoors and use copious amounts of nose spray. If I can seal myself in I can, I can at least keep the symptoms at bay. So the dilemma arises in that I’m breastfeeding and pretty much any useful allergy medication that will help all of my symptoms will dry up my supply.
What’s a lady to do? Do I start plying myself with drugs to survive this season or do I tough it out for the sake of my supply? Only time will tell if these nose sprays can keep me alive but if not, I have a tough decision ahead. Fixing something so temporary at the expense of nursing seems like a waste. That’s how I feel today at least….
