Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

If you have a cold it is okay to still nurse. Your body is making antibodies against the cold that you will pass on to her through your breast milk. Make sure you are washing your hands and not sneezing or coughing on her.  The same goes if you have a stomach virus, your milk will help her fight the illness
