For years on end I have lived with hay fever. Every autumn in particular I am really bad: nose running constantly, runny and sore eyes and asthma. I normally suffer in silence (I take ventolin for my asthma but not much else) but I think I should take an antihistamine to improve my quality of life. Are there any that are ok for breastfeeding mums? Thanks.

Some antihistamines are okay to take while breastfeeding. There's an information sheet published by the Breastfeeding Network here

That's great! Thanks so much, greenbananas!
