Are you wondering what breastfeeding mothers should do to keep themselves and their babies healthy during the flu season? I’ve been wondering too as I read the recommendations from different health organizations as they try to figure out what makes sense with the swine flu.
General consensus: wash your hands, take care of yourself, and breastmilk is good for babies. Also, don’t lick pigs. (ok, so they don’t mention the pig-licking but I had to have an excuse to include this picture in my post)
