Can mother breastfeed if she is sick?
To begin with, it is necessary to find out which diseases are an obstacle to breastfeeding, and which are not. Of course, if a mother is seriously sick or if she is hospitalized and there is a threat to her life, then the baby will have to be transferred to artificial feeding. It is strictly forbidden to breast-feed a child if the mother has acute infectious diseases, HIV, tuberculosis. If the mother has a cold, then this is no reason to interrupt breastfeeding.
