Dr Irizarry: made a medication recommendation. How about homemade ginger tea? Places slices of fresh organic ginger in boiling water. Place the top on the teapot and steep for five minutes . Slip slowly. Or consider crystallized ginger.

Yes: Yes, most of the common heartburn meds are safe with breastfeeding. Use the lowest dose possible, of course, but really pepcid, zantac, (ranitidine) prilosec, or any proton pump inhibitor are find for breastfeeding mothers.
