Not a big deal: Should not be a big problem....filters were not strictly needed....so, if mixed well, infused well, no worries

Is it a good idea to nurse my baby to sleep?

2 doctor answers7 doctors weighed in
Dr. Scott Tomaine
Pediatrics 20 years experience
No: The key to infant sleep is teaching your baby to fall asleep on his or her own. Infants who fall asleep at the breast, or in your arms, have trouble staying asleep for long periods and often have overall poor sleep. I recommend a good, stable bedtime routine, similar bedtime ( sometime between 7 and 9), and putting the baby in his or her crib before they are totally asleep. Be consistent.

Studies show an increase of sleep disturbance in infants fed to sleep by 400% during their first 4 years.

Is it safe to nurse while infected with food poisoning?

Yes: It is safe to continue to breastfeed, but be sure both you and baby are well hydrated, if you become dehydrated due to vomiting or diarrhea your milk supply might suffer and the baby then is left thirsty.
