What antipyretic may be administered during breastfeeding
Colds and flu while breastfeeding can happen to any woman.Do I need to stop feeding at the time of disease, feed the baby expressed milk, and most importantly - what antipyretics, adopted mom, not harm her baby, if you continue to give him the breast?
Let's start with the last question - acetaminophen while breastfeeding is the most commonly prescribed drug against heat.With these pills, many women are familiar from the time of pregnancy, when only they can be completely safe to take if necessary.
Drink paracetamol during breastfeeding can be in dosages recommended by your doctor.Not more than 3-4 times a day, in the amount of no more than 3-4 grams.A single dose is calculated according to the weight of women.The more weight - the greater the dose, the drug to work.Usually it 750 mg or 1000, but not more than that.
antipyretic use without consulting a doctor at a tolerably well-being can be within three days.If during this time the illness has not receded, required medical consultation.He'll tell you how to take acetaminophen while breastfeeding in the future and are likely to prescribe other medicines to help get rid of the disease.
Gets whether this drug passes into breast milk?Yes, but in very small quantities.To eliminate the minimum penetration of the chemical into the body of the child, you need to take a pill immediately after feeding.Then for the next feeding, which will take 3-4 hours, in breast milk is scanty concentration of the drug, it is safe and invisible to the body of the child.
But if the temperature is below 38.5 degrees, although there is a general lack of energy, sore throat, runny nose, taking paracetamol if necessary?Doctors do not recommend to do so expectant and nursing mothers.At the very least, take the tablets often, as in the heat.It is better to find than traditional methods to bring down the temperature of the breastfeeding mom.Let this be the cool air in the room, a warm drink, shower or cool bath.By the way, a very good way to reduce the temperature itself quickly and without drugs - take a bath with a temperature slightly below 37 degrees.Your body will give the water a little heat.Thus, the temperature will drop.Law of physics.
But in some cases, not using paracetamol for fever.Questions whether paracetamol temperature and headache breastfeeding identical.Of course, it is better to do without medicines.About non-drug ways to reduce the temperature, we talked.And the same method can be used to overcome the non-medicated headache.For example, very good deep sleep helps with migraines.And in the so-called pain-voltage light massage of the neck and the administration of drugs, antispasmodics.Often, even the usual valerian helps to improve mood.The person taking it calms, relaxes, and the headache goes away.If not, then paracetamol "from the head", and the temperature used during breastfeeding.
But let us return to our first issue of colds.Just knocking the temperature, the virus does not get rid of.But most doctors generally advise ARI and ARI is not treated as they recover on their own.And for a period of healing intake of drugs has little influence.But all these drugs fall into the milk, and then to the child's body.Because before to treat a cold during breastfeeding alone, wait for a while, most likely, very soon you will get better.If not - contact your doctor.Interrupt feeding for the duration of the disease is not necessary.It should only take steps to prevent infection of the baby from you airborne.This thorough hygiene and the use of medical masks.
