Natural treatments for nursing moms

Although many medications are compatible with breastfeeding, it’s always a good idea to minimize the use of medications when nursing. Following are various natural treatments for nursing moms that I have collected.

Keep in mind that herbal and other “natural” treatments in general are not without risk for nursing moms – herbs can be just as pharmacologically active as meds from the pharmacy. Before using any herbal treatment, investigate whether it is safe for nursing moms.
