You can take ibuprofen too, and that's pretty much about it.

I hope you feel better soon, bf'ing when you really feel ill is tough. Doable, but tough.

Night Nurse.

Or, if you can find it, Vicks Medinite.

I cosleep and feed at night. I was told i could not take decongestens when bf.

Don't think night nurse, contains a decongestant which can reduce milk supply. Ibuprofen definitely okay

Same here sad

It's tough looking after LOs when you feel terrible. I've just been dosing on paracetamol and homemade hot toddies.

Feel well soon!
