    Default feel like crap

    can i still bf. i threw up all night, now i have a fever and pounding headache. everything i read makes me feel like if i bf i will actually help him out b/c he'll get some antibodies in case these germs try to get him. am i understanding this right?

    Yep! There is no reason to stop nursing when you're sick, and BM may actually help protect your LO against germs. Just make sure to take good care of yourself. Nurse lying down, if you can, so you can both get some rest. Hope you feel better soon!

    and if you can, try to drink fluids too (if you can keep them down) that will help with your supply (not that you will lose it, but when you are sick i have read that it can dwindle some)
    I hope you feel better soon!
