Im a breastfeeding mom, what medicine should I take to avoid vomiting and nausea during travel?

Depends on severity: If your motion sickness isn't too severe, then try ginger candy (or ginger capsules if you can't stand the taste of ginger!). This works well for some, especially if the symptoms are mild. If you have pretty severe motion sickness, then my medication of choice is zofran (ondansetron). It is fairly non sedating, unlike other over the counter and prescription meds. It can be prescribed by your doctor. ...Read more

28 year old mom with ms. Breastfeeding. Not postpartum. Is dieting ok? How many calories should I take in?

Suggestions: Recommend using an MS diet, perhaps Swank diet. Key is to use low salt, low fat, and you may do well with roughly 1500-2000 calories daily.

Also, get onto MS drug when breastfeeding concludes. ...Read more
