I wasn't able to produce milk with my first child and gave up just 2 days ago trying to produce for my 5 day old. Last night my milk decided it did want to come in after all....and my allergies decided they wanted to flare up as well. I normally Benadryl to ease the misery but the problem with that is it puts me to sleep for 1-2 hours rendering me unable to care for him without help. My other concern and first question is whether or not it is safe to take Benadryl while pumping and if not is there any that is? Preferably non-drowsy. I can't not take something but at the same time if nothing is safe I will have to have my milk dried up and the thought just puts me into a blue mood.
