Yes! Breastfeeding while you are sick is completely safe. Breastfeeding will actually help prevent your baby from getting sick by passing on antibodies in your milk. If your baby does get sick then the antibodies in your milk will help your baby to get better quicker. Just make sure to check with your doctor before taking any medications because some over the counter medications are not safe for breastfeeding.
