Breastfeeding Week

As part of breastfeeding week, remember that not all medications are safe if you are breastfeeding (including some herbal medications). If you are breastfeeding, please remember to check with a pharmacist before you start any new course of treatment to make sure it will be safe for you and your baby. Another common problem for both breastfed and bottlefed babies is colic - if you're worried your baby may have colic, have a look at our "Health Advice" tab and speak to our pharmacist for extra information. One potential cause of colic is that babies sometimes don't produce enough enzymes to break down the sugar in milk (lactose) until their system matures a little. In cases like these, drops containing laclase enzyme can help ease the symptoms, examples available from our pharmacy include Colief and Care Co-Lactase. Finally, if you want to breastfeed but are worried you aren't producing enough milk, speak to your health visitor or GP for advice. Some supplements containing herbs like Fenugreek are thought to be safe and may help, but don't be tempted into buying prescription medicines online without discussing with a prescriber - medications like domperidone may be effective, but can produce very serious side effects and can be deadly. Don't risk it!
