So, cold and flu season hit my family full force last week. The baby was sick for a week and the other three of us for several days. As a result, I am late on posting last week's BellaOnline Breastfeeding Article. To make up for it, here are two articles (last week's and this week's together!) on Nursing and Illness, which will hopefully be as timely for you as they are for me. And please check out and contribute to the Breastfeeding and Illness thread in the forum -- the link is below the articles.
Here's the latest two articles from the Breastfeeding site at BellaOnline.com.
-- Nursing a Sick Child --
Breastfeeding can be invaluable when your child is ill. Here's a couple things you should know about nursing your sick child.
-- Nursing While Sick --
Did you know that you can and should continue nursing your baby when you are sick! Includes information and tips to get through cold and flu season.
