Put the cleaning aside and try to get better.With the cold winter months coming around, common colds hitch a ride. I'm currently writing this while breathing through my mouth, surrounded by used tissues (okay, they're in a little trashcan, I'm not THAT gross), as I battle a cold that smacked my whole family, but me worse of all. I'm glad my job is typing because I can barely talk!
I'm incredibly grateful, though, that despite my illness, I can still breastfeed my daughter and help her get better or even prevent her from catching the bug I have, but best of all, I can still take medication if I need to and nurse her safely.
There's just a couple of things you should know about nursing through the cold and flu season -- especially when mom is sick.
