Did you know?
Moms can still breastfeed while sick. In fact, it’s good for your baby. When you get sick, your body starts fighting the illness by making antibodies, which then get passed on to your baby. By the time you show symptoms of illness, guess what? Your baby has already been exposed to the virus or bacteria, boosting your baby’s immune system. By continuing to breastfeed, you’re not just keeping up your milk supply, you’re protecting your baby from getting sick in the future.
