Hi Nike. Pls don't worry. In fact breastfeeding at this time is actually good for your baby . Just try to get yourself fit and fine at the earliest. Take rest and adopt more careful practices like cleaning your hands to avoid spreading germs. Baby needs you too so be normal.

thank you Priya. So u saying I need not take any meds ?

home remedies like steam or add bit of turmeric to hot milk and have it...u can try these there r no side effects

thank you Avani , will do the same.

u will pass antibodies via bm stop worrying I don't think ur baby will catch cold

u can apply Vicks , do steam inhalation , have warm water thru the day , boil little tulsi , ginger , turmeric n add honey n have it 2-3 times a day
n most imp rest well to recover faster
