Hi, I have a 14 day old baby and am breast feeding. I have been infected with cold and sore throat. Don't want to end up infecting the baby. Please can you suggest remedies and ways to prevent the baby from being infected.

Sorry Ann my mistake I read it as 14 months instead of day. Sincere apologies. Yes you may continue breastfeeding and take ginger tea, or warm water to help soothe your sour throat. Extremely sorry for the mistake and the wrong advice.

Continue breastfeeding normally Your body is equipped to protect the baby and your milk contains all the antibodies that wil protect it from infections it's immune to Pls don't stop feeding at all !

Agree with Isha.. You can keep feeding her... Meanwhile try n take some medicines or natural remedies like tulsi/ ginger tea, soups etc so that you get well soon. Steam and gargle will help u to get better soon.

Don't worry .... U keep feeding her ...just cover ur mouth with a cloth... N avoid bringing ur face close to the baby... Mother's milk contains antibodies which will help baby fight infection... U get well soon :)

Why would I give all that to a 14 day old baby?

You should stop breastfeeding immediately. You may give your baby other food like sooji kheer, besan ka sheera. Hope this helps.
