Correctol safe to take when BFing?
emily971979 posted:
I gave birth via C/S on Tuesday and am still unable to poop! It is starting to become so painful, DH went out and bought me some generic Correctol at Walgreens(the little pink pills) but then I got to thinking it might be harmful to the baby since I am BFing. I looked online and got mixed opinions so I thought I might try here. TIA!

I dont know about it but I used Colace when I was at the hossy and then at home for a while. it works great and is ok to use while BFing

Thanks for the advice! Luckily, I was finally able to go on my own, but will keep this in mind just in case.
