In brief: Passive immunity
Yes, you can pass antibodies to baby through colostrum in breast milk, but these will not confer long lasting immunity.

In brief: See below
The greatest degree of protection conferred by your vaccine is because you are less likely to get the influenza, and therefore not expose your baby.
Have everyone around your baby get vaccinated too.
