Keep on breastfeeding. You'll pass antibodies to your nursling to prevent her cold from getting too bad. Stay well hydrated and you'll both do OK.

Keep breastfeeding... it's the best thing you can do while you are sick... you body produces antibodies and passes them to the baby... your antibodies will help you baby fight off the infection.
