It is safe to continue breastfeeding when you have a illness. Breastfeeding will pass on protective antibodies to your baby and help prevent your baby from getting sick or help them recover faster if they do get sick. Make sure that you are taking good care of yourself when breastfeeding with an illness. Drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest so you can recover quickly. Before taking any medications make sure they are safe for breastfeeding.
