Re: breastfeeding with bad cold
Well, DS does seem to have caught my cold, which makes sense. After all, viruses can travel in breastmilk as well as antibodies, right? So far it's not as severe as mine, maybe because he got the antibodies at the same time as the cold so the virus didn't have a chance to settle.
Anyway, is there anything I should or shouldn't be eating/drinking? I know when a toddler has a cold you don't give him milk because it encourages mucus production -- will my drinking milk have the same effect on my baby? Will my eating extra vitamin C foods help or should I give the baby vitamins?
