  • Tylenol is fine, and actually nursing while you are sick is great for your LO. It passes on the immunities to baby. Baby is already expesed to you so, to get the immunities into them is the best thing to do. Just make sure you are keeping your fluid intake up.

  • It's fine. It is best to nurse when sick so that baby gets the antibodies. Had you been pumping while using formula? Be careful not to compromise your supply.

  • Yeah you can nurse while taking that in fact my doctor told me too....if you have not been nursing or pumping those meds may have dried you out and its gonna take a while to get the baby back to the breast...start nursing NOW
