  • in my honest opinion, regardless if you are feeding him or not, your imunity boosters that are in your milk will keep him safe. your milk is living food, can't get any better than that. My bf had a nasty cold, and me and the boy were the only ones that didnt get it. Even though everyone else thats around us did. Especially both grandmas. Good luck, and dont worry, if he gets the sniffles, you can get little noses saline drops. Hugs

  • continuing to bf, unless you are taking medication that is unsafe for your baby, is the best thing you can do to keep your baby from getting your illness. What your immune system produces to try to fight that particular sickness is passed to the baby in your milk, keeping him healthy! So keep bf'ing, just be extra clean as far as extra hand-washing and hand sanitizer and such. hope you feel better!
