Absolutely. Babies still need to eat and you'll give baby the antibodies your body creates naturally when you're exposed to something, making them less likely to get sick and helping them get better faster if they do get sick.

Yes, definitely, don't stop and try to keep yourself hydrated. I had a bad GI virus at 1week and baby didnt get it. Breastmilk gives them antibodies to fight illnesses. Also make sure u wash your hands a lot.

This! Actually continuing to nurse is the BEST possible thing for you to do! :-)
