chute (1253.8 days ago) see if you can get on tamiflu, seriously i had the h1n1 and i felt like i was going to die and i got a perscription for it after taking the first pill i felt such relief withing an hour!! i would call your ob/gyn or midwife and see if you can take it.
mtnwoman(shelly) (1254 days ago) ditto to what tommiesmommy said. I was going to leave a longer comment, but looks like she said it all! :)
chevychic96 (1254 days ago) I had the same thing when my now 9 weeks old was only 2 weeks old. Temp of 105 and everything but vomiting...I ended up going to the ER cause it was the weekend and I too was worried about my infant and BF. The docs all told me to keep nursing but stay away from everyone as much as possible. My 18 month old caught my sickness but the 2 week old never did. I just locked my self in our bedroom and my husband brought me the baby when he was hungry! It was horrible and last about 3-4 days for us...and I broke a tooth while all that was going on!! Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
armymom (1254 days ago) your body fights harder and creates stronger antibodies when YOUR sick so keep nursing because that`s the best stuff to pass onto baby. hope you feel better xx
courtenay (1254 days ago) by nursing your baby is getting the antibodies you are producing to fight the illness
KR (1254 days ago) From what i understood while BF it was that the BM actually helps keep the illness away. My son had a very nasty flu when she was just born and i was so worried that my daughter would get it, but my doctor told me to keep BF and this should help her fight anything off. Sure enough she never caught anything.
T3POandR2D2 (1254 days ago) Oh! Definitely nurse as often as possible! The antibodies in your breastmilk will help him keep the cold away and if he DOES get it the antibodies will help fight it off.From - http://www.kellymom.com/health/illness/mom-illness.htmlThe best thing you can do for your baby when you're sick is to continue to breastfeed. When you have a contagious illness such as a cold, flu, or other mild virus, your baby was exposed to the illness before you even knew you were sick. Your milk will not transmit your illness to baby, but it does have antibodies in it that are specific to your illness (plus anything else you or baby have been exposed to) - they'll help prevent baby from getting sick, or if he does get sick, he'll probably not be as sick as you.
Withholding your breastmilk during an illness increases
the possibility that baby will get sick, and deprives baby
of the comfort and superior nutrition of nursing.
