Check your prescriptions carefully, and any time anyone asks you to go on a prescription medication ask BOTH the Doctor and Pharmacist if it is safe.

Only you can.

That's all the more reason you SHOULD pump, so you can give your antibodies to your child emoticon . There are a couple of situations where you shouldn't, according to the CDC:
If the mother...

Has been infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)

Is taking antiretroviral medications

Has untreated, active tuberculosis

Is infected with human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I or type II

Is using or is dependent upon an illicit drug

Is taking prescribed cancer chemotherapy agents, such as antimetabolites that interfere with DNA replication and cell division

Is undergoing radiation therapies; however, such nuclear medicine therapies require only a temporary interruption in breastfeeding

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

I never used bottles with our children - I nursed them even if I was very sick. Hope you feel better soon.

Dec 2008-Dec 2009 I faithfully maintained a 107-109... Unfortantely after Dec 2009, I let myself get back to a 115.6 - I'm back on track and am going to get back to my maintaining range again!

Yes, you can pump and nurse when sick. You actually make antibodies in your breastmilk to prevent baby from catching your illness!

Don't let anyone tell you that you'll pass your illness through breastmilk-quite the opposite-nurse and pump away!

Is it o.k. for me to pump my breastmilk if I am sick? I want to keep pumping, but I'm sick right now. Any info would be helpful! Thanks!
