Breastfeeding mom with a cold

I'm new to homeopathy and I'm not sure what I can take that is compatable with breastfeeding. Both of my children had the same cold and got better taking the Hyland's C-Plus cold tablets. I took two or three doses myself and it helped but I still have a terrible headache. Read 'Everybody's guide to homeopathic medicine' and my symptoms seem to indicate Euphrasia as treatment.

1) cold started 4 days ago with mild sore throat and nasal congestion
2) clear nasal discharge and burning tears (especially left eye)
3) yesterday I was cold and wanted to be under covers today I've been hot and sweating
4) have a stabbing headache around right eye today and have been coughing (worse in the morning) loose cough upper lungs
5) been irritable and snapping at people, want to be left alone

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The day you replied to me it was too late to go to the store to get the nux vomica. I used the Hyland's (children's) C-plus pellets and they worked, but after two days of feeling better I now have more respiratory symptoms and the nasal discharge is now yellowish. Should I still try the nux vomica. I can get some today. Also, is there anything I should avoid since I'm still nursing a baby?
Thanks so much,

what remedies/ingrediants in hyland's c plus?
John Stanton last decade

Hyland's C-plus has Euphatorium pertoliatum 3x
euphrasia officinalis 2x
Gelsemium sempervirens 3x
kali ladtum 3x

I was feeling better the last two days (less congestion, no more burning eyes, a little more energy.)

This morning I was coughing much more (upper lungs, loose cough and my chest felt really tight). I had yellow nasal discharge this morning so I really thought it was turning into a sinus infection. After I ate and moved around some I felt better and the discharge is clear again. The coughing and congestion were worse in the morning.

My appetite is OK. I haven't been feeling hungry, but when presented with food I have a good appetite. Does that answer everything?

Also, do you know if there is anything I should not take due to nursing the baby?

1 pellet 200c pulsailla in 4 oz water--in drinking glass-stir heavy--mother only take 1 single teaspoon dose of this mix...

nursing...mother and child are not to have any acidic foods or drinks(coffee;all teas;all carbonated soft drinks;pickled foods;vinegar;al alcoholic beverages;all fruits and fruit juices....etc)

mother and child --no rivh foods--no products at all with refined white sugar ---stay away from sugar cane sugar all together...no processe sweeteners at all...organic 100% pure - maple syrup is ok---also unfiltered unheated raw 100% organic honey is ok (sparingly) .....

no foods or drinks with any preservatives or additives

good source of untrated water
no milk or milk products... organic non homogenized milk is ok--best is goat or goat whey /protein

take time read labels of food products and such...

bs stay away from external application products---

alos no other meds/herbs/remedies...

basically simplify diet--only acids allowed back into diet after a bit-are fruits--and reintroduced slowly...taking note efect of each particular item...

well may need repeat pulsatila --we will see---

get yourself nux vomica 200c;sulphur 200c when you get pulsatilla 200c..

all clear?questions?

keep me closely informed
