Safety of Using Homeopathic Remedies While Breastfeeding

This article is a guest post by Joette Calabrese.  This is the second in a series on homeopathy for infants and children. 
As mothers, we know that there is no better nourishment for our babies than breast milk.


Whatever a mother eats, drinks or uses medicinally, will influence her milk supply. Because of this superbly close affinity between the mother’s health and her milk, it’s vital that it be full of rich nutrients (courtesy of her nutrient-dense diet) and clean of any harmful substance from the likes of over-the-counter meds, antibiotics or steroids.

Drugs leave havoc in their wake by suppressing illness, compromising immunity and carrying with them side effects; many of which are not put to rest simply by halting the medication.

But what if the mother gets sick? Well, that’s where homeopathy comes in to play.

Homeopathic remedies are not like over-the-counter meds, antibiotics or steroids. While the latter treat the symptoms, homeopathy addresses the entire person. Additionally, drugs tend to suppress the illness, while homeopathy helps the body overcome it.

Homeopathy has no side effects and will not interfere with any other medications or procedures. Plus, it’s the gentlest and also most powerful way to give the gift of robust health to both mother and child.

When a breastfeeding mother becomes sick, I strongly encourage her to try homeopathic remedies.

This means that the remedies a mother might use for acute illnesses (mastitis, yeast infections, UTI’s, colds, flu’s, ear infections, etc) are both gentle and safe.

Even if the mother and child are in good health, I still encourage the daily use of three cell salt remedies while the baby nurses to promote and maintain robust health. Calc fluor 6x, Nat mur 6x and Silica 6x have a reputation for helping to build bones and teeth enamel, strengthening blood vessels and arteries, and building strong and resilient blood, skin, hair and nails.

These and other cell salt remedies will help to nourish and fortify the infant’s health, too.

A nursing mother gets the best of both worlds when she uses homeopathic remedies. Not only is her health gently and safely restored and supported, but in the process, her baby’s health is also nourished with every nursing moment.

  1. Love homeopathy for this reason and so many others!

  2. Joette, Your information is always so accurate and informative. I love reading everything you write no matter what site it appears on. Although I have no infants to breast feed, I find your articles always have a correlation either directly or indirectly to some aspect of life, and I pass your info on to others who I feel would also benefit. Your blog is packed with a valuable wealth of infomation.

  3. I am currently breastfeeding my third child. How many times a day do you suggest to use Calc fluor 6x, Nat mur 6x and Silica 6x? Can I use them together?

  4. Thanks for this information!

  5. I wish I'd had homeopathy in my life when my babies were little!

  6. Our family has used homeopathy for several years now and it is such a blessing! My health and the health of our children has made such a turn around in the past year. Homeopathy is wonderful!

    What a great post.
