I've been sick the last two days with a stomach bug and last night developed a fever of 101.7. I'm breastfeeding my 6 week old daughter and was worried I might make her ill by breastfeeding so I called her pediatrician for advice. She told me that you can't breastfeed an infant for 24 hours after having a fever over 101. She then told me to giver her formula until I get rid of my fever. Is this true? I read on other internet sites that breastfeeding even while sick will give your baby antibodies against whatever illness you have. I am NOT going to giver her formula but what do I do?
