H1N1 and Breastfeeding

Allyson - posted on 11/13/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




Just curious if anyone is breastfeeding and has gotten the h1n1 vaccine? My daughter is only 5 months so she doesn't get the vaccine yet but I was told my husband and I should get it. I am still not sure if I am going to go get it or not. I was just wondering if there were any effects to the baby with breastfeeding mothers? Thanks!

I tried but couldn't find it anywhere. They have the spray, but I would rather get the shot because of my daughter. I did get my seasonal flu shot which I'm glad I did because I can't find that for my daughter now that she's old enough for it. If I can find it, I'm going to get it. You will pass antibodies through your breastmilk to help protect your baby.
