I've got a cold and so has DH but DS doesn't seem to be effected. Is it possible to stop him from getting it all togther just by breastfeeding?

I've found that whenever I've been ill DS has never got it. Even two bouts of vomiting bug and he wasn't affected.

I've had 2 cold since ds was born on September and he has caught neither of them so I think there's a good chance he's protected by antibodies we make and pass on in the milk.
