Chericof syrup used for cough, contains dextromethorphan, chlorpheniramine and phenylephrine. All these medicines are considered to be moderately safe in breast feeding mother and does not causes any significant problem if taken in prescribed dosage.
So you can take this syrup as prescribed by your doctor.
