Hi have been feeling yak all day. Vomiting, aching and headache. DH stepped in taken day off and looked after DC. Just wondered if I should continue to feed DD (3 months) she seems happy and healthy at the mo, but don't want to pass anything on.

Should I express and chuck milk away?? DH has been giving baby EM from the supply in freezer.

I was always told by my Dsis (peadiatrician) to keep feeding when ill, you'll be making antibodies and passing these to DD in your milk.
Hope you feel better soon

Just keep feeding. You won't pass the bug via your milk.

If DD does get ill, then BM is the best thing for a tummy bug as it's so gentle on the stomach and so easily digested.
