I am bf my 4.5 month old bub and since birth have not felt completely well. I suffered from secondary bleeding/infections and was treated for this. I also got a cold about 1.5 months ago and have been not 100% since.
I work from home and have a toddler so always have a lot on my plate.
I know bf can take up alot of energy. I usually eat quite well and even started clean eating BUT I have now got another cold/flu (we think I caught it from my Mum who has brochiolitis) and I just feel like I can't face another illness I just want to feel fighting fit whilst bf! And I want to bf for as long as possible. I am taking 2 capsules of blackmores pregnancy/bf vitamin and an inner health plus.
I would love to hear from others that may have consulted a doctor/pharmacist or naturopath and maybe given advice on what I can safely take or do whilst bf? TIA! Going now to vicks myself
