I have been BF DS for 9 months now, happy, probably elated that I have come this far!
Anyway, I have read that BF babies don't get sick as often.
Okay, I have a question. 2 weeks ago, DS was down with a cold, and was ill for nearly a month.
Now he is ill again!
Same goes for my sister's little baby.
She says, "BF didn't help keep my baby from illness."
Is there some sort of guideline on how 'often' a BF baby gets sick relative to non-BF'ed babies?
