In other words, breastfeeding will not make your baby sick. To prevent spreading infection: handwashing/hand sanitizer after nose blowing, kiss the back of baby's head, not mouth or hand, cough in your sleeve. ...Read more

I've a 7wk old baby.. I have just started a cold and sore throat, sinus problem. Since I'm breast feeding, can my baby fall sick? Am taking aleve (naproxen).

Breastfeeding +cold: Unfortunately, yes, but most likely from being close to you when you sneeze or cough as the reason. Try wearing an earloop mask from the pharmacy to prevent viral spread to your baby. Your breast milk will contain antibodies against the virus your baby needs to fight the infection if caught, so please continue to breastfeed. Short term use of Aleve (naproxen) is fine. ...Read more
