I have a week and a half old baby boy and well I'm starting to get sick :( I both breastfeed and formula feed him. My thing is will I pass my cold to him if I breastfeed him?? He's too little to get sick right now and its too early for me to get sick when he's this lil.

No your ok.  I was actually sick with the cold when my DD was born and she was fine.  The breast milk is by far the better option than formula and he should remain healthy.

It's best to breastfeeding him because your milk will make antibodies for whatever you have that will make him be less sick, if he catches it at all. Have you checked out the breastfeeding moms group?
