I have a lot of cold with sneezing. Slight headache too. My son is 2. 5 months old. On exclusive breastfeeding. Can I breastfeed him in this condition? Is it ok If I take medication for cold?

don't stop feeding baby.. even I had cold couple of weeks back but didn't stop breastfeeding my baby.. just put a cloth on your nose during feed.. and maintain meaningful distance with baby till you get well...

hi Purva Badhe ! please do not stop breastfeeding him. u could wear a surgical mask or a cloth on yr nose while feeding him. try and keep a handkerchief on ur nose while sneezing when u r not feeding him. wash yr hands often.. as far as medicine which is safe during lactation is concerned, please consult your doctor.
