  • Depends on the cold...I'd get to a doctor (or at least talk to one, or if you have an insurance nurse's line, call them!) and get some breastfeeding-safe meds so you can get better quick! Good luck!

  • No actually you are helping your baby by nursing while you are sick your body is giving your baby the antibodies to fight the cold. you should talk to your dr to recomend a good safe cold medicine Feel better
