Hi - nightmare - I have just started throwing up and am unsure whether it is a tummy bug or food poisoning. Is there any chance I will pass anything nasty onto my 6 week old by continuuing to BF!

wouldn't think you can through the milk - although you may not have much milk if you are getting dehydrated - drink diarolyte if you can.

Baby may get it if it is a tummy bug.

Hope you feel better soon.

It's really important you continue bf.....whatever you have, your baby might have picked up too, not from bf which does not pass it on, but from other contact. She is likely to avoid it, if you bf, because of the antibody protection.
