I woke up this morning with a sore throat and stuffy head. What do BF'ing mom's do when they get sick? Will baby get sick? I'm clueless!

I personally don't take anything.

You cannot take anything that is a decongestant cuz that can dry up your milk.

I don't like to take things that could pass through the milk, so I just kinda wait it out

USUALLY the baby doesn't get sick though cuz you body will make antibodies and the baby will get them through your milk. So usually baby stays healthy.

HOping you feel better.

Thanks...

I haven't taken anything...I hate taking meds even when I'm not BF'ing unless I absolutely need them. The baby seems to be fine so I'm grateful for that. I wouldn't know what to do if we were both sick.
