MIA...and sick :(

This week, inspired by many of the blogs I have been following, I started 224 projects around the house. The biggest includes over 100 apples and 100 pears. Madelyn and I drove all the way to a farm in Grimsby Ontario to indulge in some chemical pesticide free produce to make batches on top of batches of homemade baby food. That led to my hunt for the most efficient apple peeler/slicer/corer = old fashioned machine+electric Drill :). This caused a lot of mouth watering and drooling so we made our way to a Carters Oshkosh where they have the best drool bibs ever. Spotted: Michaels Craft Store. Added homemade fall wreath to the list, as well as new head flower bows for little M. All this on top of 4 playmate/visits and 2 rainy dog walks. End result: stuck in bed on this beautiful fall day and my house is a Mess!

herbalist mommy friends - what can i take for a stuffed nose no fever that's safe while bf? I just want to get back to my purée!!


  1. Three suggestions for you!

    I take Gripp by Heel when I am feeling sick. It is safe while breastfeeding

    Also...Ginger Lemon Honey Tea

    a. Cut up some ginger and bring a few cups of water to a boil
    b. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 15 minutes (the longer you simmer, the stronger it is)
    c. Add honey and lemon to taste

    Drink frequently!


    And... Probiotics! You know all about these. The good bacteria is important in stregthening your immune system and they are safe while bf'ing. I like Bio K (but I work for them and am bias). You can get Bio K at any health food store or Loblaws/Indepedent. You could take 1/2 bottle to 1 whole bottle per day.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Thanks Lilasmom! I started #2 last night and increased my probiotics as well. I love the Ginger Tea. So much better than the bag version. Having trouble finding Gripp by Heel, but I've asked for help from my local Naturalpathic Doctor, so hopefully we can get it through her.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Hi, I took Gripp Heel while breastfeeding and it dried my milk. As soon as I stopped it, it returned. So careful with it.
