If you're sick you shouldn't breastfeed as the baby could get sick from it. I was told that by several people. I thought it was complete bunk because if the risk came from my face being close to the baby's well...how the heck else am I supposed to care for the baby when changing, bottle feeding, etc? I was happy to find information that says when a mother is sick her body is producing antibodies and that will show up in her milk. The baby will drink the milk and be better protected.
