I have sore throat and flu. Can I still breast feed or my baby will get sick from my milk?

In brief: Continue breastfeed

Please continue breastfeeding.
When you breastfeed, you give your baby some of the antibodies (infection fighters) that your body has developed to fight off your sore throat/flu. 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.
