Raise your hand if you're struggling with same question?🙋‍♀️ And the answer is '𝙔𝙚𝙨'. It's a frequent concern observed in new mothers whether they should feed the baby in case they are down with fever, cold or cough.

So, as a matter of fact, breastfeeding won't make your baby sick, since antibody production starts building up in mother's body even before symptoms starts showing.

These antibodies are transferred to baby while feeding strengthening her immune system. So, it is most likely she won't fall sick and if does, the intensity would be much less as compared to mother.

Hygiene is the key. Ensure that you are maintaining proper hygiene like washing hands frequently, sneezing and coughing away from baby and take plenty of rest.

In case you need medication, your physician must know you are breastfeeding so they can prescribe the medication accordingly. But, it shouldn't stop you from the breastfeeding. Remember your feeding is like an #elixir to your child! #ojas #breastfeeding #breastfeedingtips #newmomstruggles #firsttimemom #awareness #momnbabyhealth #breastfeedingsupport #maternity #mamacastle #babiesoye #momspresso #momformoms #gratitude
