Belladonna 1M is one of the most useful remedies to have on hand for breastfeeding support. You will need Belladonna if:
- Belladonna is a right-sided remedy – symptoms will either begin on the right or be more intense on the right side of the body.
- you have a throbbing headache that is worse from bending forward
- you are flushed
- your breast is red, streaky and HOT
- it all happens very suddenly – you are HOT, RED, THROBBING – it all sounds kind of sexy but it is NOT. very intense, sudden onset with pain, and extreme tenderness in the breast.
- dehydrated – very thirsty, especially for sour drinks
- strawberry tongue
- may have other symptoms of inflammation as well – swollen glands, sore throat, sinus infection etc.
- give two pellets of Belladonna 1M for the first sign of mastitis. It will work as quickly as it came on – that is the beauty of Belladonna….
