Q:

hi, I suffering with so much cold and cough. my baby is mostly taking bf and one time formula feed. should I stop bf ?



Sonali Shivlani

No before you show the symptoms of the cold and cough the virus is already in your body and your body has created anti bodies to fight it. These are being transferred thru breast milk and your baby is developing an immunity to it. Just ensure you wash your hands frequently, don't sneeze or cough on the baby and since you will be feeling low have someone else take care of the baby while you rest.
