Research – Food Poisoning While Breastfeeding – What you need to know.

Food Poisoning News

Food poisoning can be a scary prospect, especially for breastfeeding mothers. But with a little knowledge, you can keep yourself and your baby safe. It is a common illness that can affect anyone. If you are breastfeeding and experience food poisoning, it is important to know what to do to protect your baby.

You can continue breastfeeding if you have food poisoning. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) even recommends that you continue breastfeeding if you have food poisoning.

The reason is that most germs that cause food poisoning are not passed from mother to baby through breast milk. If you are feeling ill, be sure to drink plenty of fluids (rehydration solutions like Pedialyte are best) so that you don’t get dehydrated. Dehydration can make you feel worse and can make it harder for your body to fight off any infection.
