    Default I have the flu!!Help

    Hello ladies,
    so my husband gave me a terrible virus.
    Fever, sneezing..all of the above.
    Unfortunately now my LO has the virus...
    So frustrating...

    Can I pass the virus through my BM..
    Is there any kind of medication nursing mothers can take.
    Should I give her BM that was pumped before I got sick?

    Its terrible becuase when she is sick it is the breast that
    comforts her.

    She is 4 1/2 months

    The best thing you can do for your baby is to nurse. The baby will get the antibodies that your body is making, so this will help baby have a less severe case of the virus.

    Just take baby and go to bed and snuggle in for a few days.
