    Hello, Betty! I'm sorry you're not feeling well.

    Here's some helpful information:

    "Your baby is exposed to any illness you have before you know you are sick. One of the beauties of human milk is that when your body makes antibodies to combat an illness, these antibodies are passed directly into your milk, giving protection and disease-fighting abilities to your baby, too."

    Here is another (non-LLL) resource:

    HTH!
