Getting a cold with 3 week old??

I was just wondering... Will it be really bad if I got a cold with my 3 week old around me? I am BFing, and would find it difficult not to be around him while I am sick. I do not have a cold, but I was wondering what would happen if I did get a cold, being that he hasn't gotten any vaccines yet. Thanks!! :-)

  • No, especially if you're bfing.

  • I caught a cold and LO didn't. BF really helps their immunities.

  • I had a horrible cold when my LO was 3 weeks exactly. I took some tylenol to avoid a fever (most will tell you not to take anything, but I was miserable!) , and continued to BF my DS. He never got sick. My mom came over to help with him and to clean my house, which allowed me to rest more and recover quick. Thank goodness!
