Yea it's safe to breast feed. It's actually extra important because you breast feeding will pass antibodies to your baby that will protect him from catching whatever you have.

Yep!  I just got over a nasty bout of the stomach flu and breastfed my 4 month old the entire time and she didn't get sick, which I'm so thankful for since it was terrible!

It is ok to breastfeed while sick.  Your body is producing antibodies aginst your illness and they will pass on to him.  Also being sick you need to rest and that is so much easier when baby can lay and nurse with you.
