I'm currently lactating, not actually breastfeeding because my baby won't take it anymore, so I'm pumping and freezing it. I've got a cold, and my DD has one too, but she's almost over it. Do I need to throw out the milk I pump while I'm sick so that she doesn't get sick again? Or is it safe for later?Answer Question

NOOOO! It will give her anti-bodies that you have produced, when I was BFing I would intentionally get sick with what my daughter had(even though it was only twice lol) so I could produce anti-bodies to help her get over her sickness quicker!

As the other ladies have said absolutely do not throw it away but don't freeze it either. You should be using your 'sick' milk now for baby to help baby get over whatever the two of you have much quicker and easier. I hope you both feel better soon!
