What can I take? I've got Buttercup syrup, but that has a 'don't take before speaking to GP/midwife' on it, and Boots dry cough linctus, which doesn't mention pregnancy, only diabetics and children under 1.
Having a cough when of or bf is the worst, you can't take even most of the things in holland and Barrett. I hope the glycerin works for you, otherwise try to get more sleep, lots of fruit and hopefully throw it off.
Something I found fantastic after a friend recommends it: 1 teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of tumeric- mix together to a paste- if you can stomach it swallow it like that, if not put a drop of water with it to make it a little more loose. It worked fab for me, and my midwife! (Told we about it and she did it when she ah a cough and couldn't believe how well it worked). Might take 2 doses, and tastes fowl, but works ;-)
