Q:

I hav cold could my baby also get affected bcoz of breastfeeding



Sonali Shivlani

No not thru breast milk. When you catch a cold cough or flu your body makes anti bodies to fight the infection and this passes to the baby thru the breast milk and hence baby develops an immunity to this particular infection. However do not sneeze on the baby, wash hands frequently and have others do maximum handling.
