Gargle with salt water for the sore throat.

Most things are safe (antibiotics included) while breastfeeding despite what they might tell you. But instead echinachea (not sure on spelling sorry) can be very helpful and zinc cough drops are good. Salt in warm water can also help a lot as it both soothes and kills germs. Drink as many fluids as you can get your hands on...good luck!!

Breastfeeding should protect your baby from getting it. Good luck!

Keep nursing...the lo will be fine. Your body starts to make and pass defenses before you even get sick so the lo already has them. ;-)
