So I've been sick since Sunday night, it started with just an upset stomch, which turned to puking from Midnight Monday morning to like 9 pm Monday night. Can I pass the flu bug or whatever it was to my son who I'm breastfeeding? He hasn't puked yet, but I was just curious.

I am still breastfeeding my two-year-old because I have been astounded at the level of protection it has provided him against the illnesses he's been exposed to. At three weeks old, five members of our household had a stomach bug. They all had fevers of 103-104 with severe body aches and vomiting. I cared for two children under five with it, put the baby in the other room when I tended to them, and washed my hands. My son never got sick, even though he was in the car inches away from everyone coughing and sneezing quite a few times. This scenario repeated itself a dozen times over, including several colds that I caught from the older children (3, 5, 7, 9). You're producing amazing antibodies and passing them to your son. He will likely do just fine, and if he does get sick, it will be very mild and pass quickly.
