I just got sick with a cold/strep throat and I've been breastfeeding her since I got sick (so only for a day or so) but I'm worried it's going to get her sick, do you think it's too late? All my friends have said they gave their babies formula instantly when they got sick but I don't want to exclusively give her formula. Or they said they were too tired and sick to nurse their babies, I rather stay up and be sick longer so I can breastfeed her. But, is it really bad to breastfeed when sick?
