    Anyone knows what cold medicines are safe for breastfeeding? I have terrible cold/sinus infection and veramyst doesn’t work anymore for my nose.

    Ladies,

    I still breastfeed (my son is 7mo 20 lbs) and pump at work (I drive to/from work 130 miles a day)… and still have no period. Also little one ate all my extra pounds plus bfing is a perfect way to calm him down. I have pumping… but benefits are too great to give up
