    I would continue to BF. BM will help keep your lo from catching colds.
    To help prevent your lo from catching a cold you could wear a face mask- they sell them at drugstores. Also wash your hands constantly.
    But, if you are sick and have been taking care of lo the past few days more than likely your lo has already been exposed to the cold since there is usually an incubation period before symptoms begin to show.
