Gastroenteritis and breastfeeding: how do we do it?

When you catch gastroenteritis, the first reflex is to stay away from your baby in order not to contaminate him.

  • But what to do if you are breastfeeding?
  • Simply do not change anything!
  • When the first symptoms appear, you've usually been sick for a few days and the baby has already been exposed.
  • Moreover, by continuing to drink your milk, he will receive your antibodies which will help him fight against the virus.
  • So don't panic, even if breastfeeding when you're sick is not easy, it will only be beneficial for your baby and it will also avoid the discomfort of engorgement!
