    Herbs while breastfeeding

     I'm baby of two months has got ehr first cold from her brother...I am starting to get it as well and I usually take echinacea and goldenseal in tincture form. I'm wondering if this is okay to do just for a few days to help her and my cold?

    for a few days to boost your immune system should be fine.  I recommend echinacea and goldenseal tincture for mastitis.

    There is a voice inside of you
    That whispers all day long,
    "I feel this is right for me,
    I know that this is wrong."
    No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
    Or wise man can decide
    What's right for you--just listen to
    The voice that speaks inside."
