mommy i think stop ka muna BF saka wear face mask kasi baka mahawa baby mo. before kasi nung less than a month pa lang baby ko nagkasipon ako sabi pedia ko ok to continue BF as long as im wearing mask but no-no to BF if i have fever.
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: rowster on March 16, 2009, 01:49:02 pm
As far as I know, yes, it's okay to BF.  Ang alam ko nga, it's better to BF in fact coz your body will develop antibodies that will go to your breastmilk, then when you feed your baby, your baby will have the anti-trangkaso antibodies.  So para mong pinabakunahan baby mo.  Kaya nga bihira magkasakit ang mga breastfed babies kasi ang dami nilang nakukuhang antibodies from their mommies.  Or kung sakaling nahahawa man sila sa mga mommy nila, super-mild lang yung sakit nila.
 
But if you want to be sure ask your baby's pedia.

ask ko lang sa mga nagpapabreastfeed jan...pinadede nyo ba ang baby nyo kahit may sakit kayo...i have sipon and ubo...and dahil jan nilagnat na din ako..i asked my pedia sabi wag daw because malaki ang chance nha mahawa c baby..pero nagsearched ako thru internet and nabasa ko na ok naman daw magpadede kahit may lagnat ang mother..maigi daw un dahil yung piproduce na antibodies na katawan ay napapass kay baby na nagpapatibay sa immune system niya..

ano po opinion nyo?natry nyo nb magpadede kahit may lagnat kayo..tia

sa case ko sis nung nagbebreastfeed pa po ako there was a time na nagkaubo at sipon din ako ,. since no choice dahil purely breastfed pa si baby that time at since di din ako nilalagnat pinadede ko sya ,. ayun nahawa din ng sipon hehe pero nawala din agad ,. kaya sabe din ng pedia ko pag ganun eh wag na lang magpadede ,. ask ka na lang sa pedia mo what brand of milk ang pwede mo gamitin kay baby as a substitute sa milk mo

ako naman nung nagka sore throat turned to sipon at ubo nag pa breastfeed pa din ako kahit na naka amoxicillin pa ko (consult your pedia kung pwede kayo mag take ng mga meds while breastfeeding) hindi naman nahawa si baby. yun nga lang naka mask ako kapag hawak ko si baby at frequent handwashing :)

I got sick and was allowed to breastfeed my baby provided I should wear a mask.  Dapat isolated ako from my baby and bawal alagaan......
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: mum_06 on July 02, 2010, 02:28:58 pm
pure breastfeed din po ako noon at nilagnat kaso walang ubo at sipon. nagtanong po kami sa general doktor if bawal magbreastfeed habang may lagnat..sagot niya mas bawal na magutom ang baby kaya tuloy breastfeed ko at buti na lang hindi nahawa si baby..
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: mama bear on July 02, 2010, 10:54:15 pm
Iba iba po pala opinyon ng mga doctor's esp. pedia regarding sa pag breast feed habang may sakit. Ako kasi ngaun malala sipon ko though walang lagnat pinadede ko si baby kahit malala sipon ko, mixed feeding kasi ako. Ngaun naobserved ko na madalas na paghatching ni baby and parang nauubo sya once in a while pro di pa naman sya sinisipon (wag naman sana). Pro I decided na stop ko muna breast feeding and stick muna ko sa formula milk habang may sipon pa ko, para iwas hawa kay baby. Kawawa naman kasi sya pag sya ang sinipon. :'(
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: Shanelle™ on July 02, 2010, 11:34:01 pm
Sis I also breastfed while having cough and colds. Thru research I found out na even before naging ubo and sipon un, your baby is already exposed sa virus. Mas mahihirapan lang sha if  hindi mo i-feed. Remember, we sort of release Antibodies when we are sick. And we pass this on to our babies when we breastfeed.

Pero shempre pag malala na sakit like measles or the like - isolation talaga yun.

Hope this helps.

Post by: insensitive on July 05, 2010, 05:31:10 pm
according to my breastfeeding guidebook it is safe to feed the baby when you are sick. You can take fever medecines like,paracetamol which are safe and will not affect the baby while brestfeeding. But if some illnesses are concerned we need to seek the advice of the doctor.. :)

Post by: mommy_lansky on July 07, 2010, 11:49:01 am
sis pag lagnat lang ok lang i-breastfeed si baby pero kung sipon at ubo baka nga mahawa...i suggest mag-store ka ng milk mo sa freezer...tumatagal naman un up to 3 mos. eh...para pag may sakit ka, pwede un ang ipa-dede mo kay baby...

ay now ko lang nabasa thread na to..late na..
Sa case ko po na almost 3yrs na exclusively breastfeeding my son, may times din na nag ka flu ako pero tuloy lang mag breast feed.i've read also,kagaya ng ibang mommies, na yung antibodies na naipoproduce ng katawan natin, naipapasa sa baby thru breastmilk. Not once na nahawa ko sya.mas pa na sya ang nghahawa sakin pag my sipon ubo sya.hehe.
Kwento din po ng mil ko, noon daw nagkaron sya mumps,pnatuloy lang ng pedia pg bfeed and di naman nahawa baby niya

Post by: Shanelle™ on August 23, 2010, 08:02:11 pm
Based from my own experience, i breastfed while I am sick with fever/colds.  Its ok mami as long as hindi sha yung nakakahawa and critical na sakit. As from what Ive researched din, bago ka pa magkasakit, expose na si baby sa virus na meron ka.. if you breastfeed, mapapasa mo yung antibodies na ginagawa ng katawan mo, making her recover faster kung mahawa man sha.

Ask your pedia or your breastfeeding consultant sis. Iba pa din pag breastfeeding advocate ang pedia and ob mo. Kapag hindi kasi advocate, they will suggest bottle/formula talaga.
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: Shanelle™ on August 23, 2010, 08:03:42 pm
ingat din sa medicines na iniinom mo. Pinakasafe is paracetamol. the rest, ask your doctor before taking them.

Usually ako pag sipon, iniinuman ko lang ng FERN C and dami water.

ako naman never nagkasakit while breastfeeding. Pero yun din ang bilin ni pedia, pwede magbreastfeed unless may iba ka pang sakit aside lagnat,sipon or ubo..

at meron naman ako guidebook na bigay ni pedia dun na lang ako nagbabasa kapag may questions hehe :)

based from my experience, nagpa bf ako kay baby while i have cough na yung phlegm ay nakabara sa throat & allgergic rhinosinusitis. ang ginawa ko lang ay asked ang pulmonologist kung ano gamot pinaka safest inumin. he gave me an antibiotic na itatake ko 3x a day for 7 days.

notice ko lang na di sya nahahawa sa akin, lakas talaga resistensya niya and yung milk supply ko ay continous pa rin. better to ask also your pedia if yung iniriseta ng pulmonologist na gamot ay pwede din sa bf, wala naman masama if you double check diba.

Hi. I have a one-year-old and she's still breastfeeding. I never had any serious illness while breastfeeding. Nagkamastitis ako once, and allergic rhenitis, oh, and UTI. I researched online and it's safe for mommies to breastfeed even with fever, coughs, and colds. Just remember to tell your doctor na breastfeeding ka so he could give you safe meds.
Also, there's a database where you can check how safe drugs are for breatfeeding. You just need to type in the generic name of the drug. Here's the link (I got this from La Leche League) http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/htmlgen?LACT
And this one's from babycenter.com..

Hi, it's safe to breastfeed even with colds and fever. Your baby have the antibodies to prevent them from getting sick. Good that you search on the internet re safe drug for breastfeeding moms. If you can, try to find the book Nursing Mother's Companion by Kathleen Huggins. It's a very complete guide to breastfeeding moms (until weaning). It also has a complete list of medicine/drugs that safe/not safe for BF moms plus yung possible effect sa baby and mom if taken. Hope this helps...  :D

nagtake ko ng antibiotic
Sa sinabi sakin, bawal po mag BF pag uminom ng antibiotic. Kasi nagpa bunot ako ng tooth ko, and a week before binunot pinagtake ako ng antibiotic at pinagbawalang magBF ng dentist. After mabunot, dahil i was injected an anesthesia, bawal pa rin for a period of time kasi makukuha yon ni baby through our milk momsie. However, better consult your pedia pa rin para may maipayo sya sayo na medication. By the way, congratz and get well soon.  :)

paracetamol lang ang pwede pag may sakit ka. kung may lagnat ka naman, pwede pa naman mag pa bfeed. when i got sick kasi binigyan ako ng antibiotic tapos pinatigil ako mag bfeed habang iniinum ko yun.
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: purple_girl on September 19, 2010, 08:43:32 pm
ang alam ko not all antibiotics naman bawal kapag nagpapbf.  just advise your doctor lang that you are breastfeeding para mabigyan ka niya ng antibiotic na pwede.  cs delivery ako and may antibiotic na binigay sa akin but never naman ako sinabihan ng doctor ko na bawal mag breastfeed.  in fact, she encouraged me pa nga to breastfeed.

hello sis darna88.  happy new year! wag ka mag alala.  biogesic is safe.  when i attended the BF class facilitated by lactation consultants zeny feliciano and cher anonas, there are only 5 families of medicines na bawal sa BF mommies.  i cant even remember the names of those meds kasi para sya sa mga cancer patients.  kaya go lang tayo ng go. happy breastfeeding. 8)

Post by: mixx on January 03, 2011, 12:27:17 am
biogesic is the only med na allowed sakin when i was pregnant.. and until now that im breastfeeding (pure bf).
dont take it 1000mg at a time. 500 lang (isang tablet) every 4 hours lagi yan. (pag may fever parin every 4 hours, pag wala na , dont take na).

i had kidney stones when i was pregnant so super sakit ng likod ko, the only pain relief i could get is from biogesic. :) ok naman.

For those moms na ngpapa BreastFeed have you tried taking mefenamic acid? Naalala ko kasi yung sabi ng pinsan ng husband ko na nagpapa BF din. Her doctor said daw na you can take meds kahit nagpapabreastfeed ka. Yung mga simple medicines daw like paracetamol. And even if you have fever pwede ka pa din daw magpa BF. I'm not sure lang kasi if pwede din ang mefenamic acid, need ko kasi uminom para sa ngipin ko..

i've been reading articles regarding bfeeding and sickness (common colds) and nagbackread na rin ako but i still don't know what to do. May ubo kasi ako kahapon lang, at sumunod agad yung lagnat. niresetahan ako ng pedia ni baby ng amoxicillin and that I can still breastfeed my 1month old son provided that I should wear a face mask.. Nabf ko si baby yesterday right after bumaba yung lagnat ko.. Ang problem ko lang, pabalik balik yung lagnat ko, kanina lang umabot ng 39.5degrees, but after taking biogesic ok na ko ngayon kaya pumuslit ako sandali dito sa SP..

I am currently taking amoxicillin 500mg 3x a day for 7days and biogesic every 4hours, kaso sabi nila dito wag ko daw muna BF si baby baka mahawa :( magpump na lang ako para hindi mawala supply ko ng BM, Is it safe pa din ba to give my expressed bf kay baby? worried ako kasi nadagdagan gamot ko tapos lala pa ng ubo ko :( or itapon ko na lang yung expressed milk? Ayoko lang talaga mawala supply ko

Post by: ericamm on September 01, 2011, 10:06:16 pm
yep sis I'm ok na..hehe magpost pa din dapat ako noon kahit walang nagreply. I'll just share my experience.

I know amoxicillin and biogesic are both safe while BFing. Worried lang ako before dahil kakatapos lang magantibiotic ng baby ko kasi nauna siyang  magkasipon bago ako nagkasakit.. Iniisip ko na baka masobrahan pag  naipasa ko sa kanya yung tinetake kong meds.. Worried din ako na baka mahawa siya sakin kasi taas lagnat ko at ang lala ng ubo. Honestly, tinamad na kong mag pump that time. Pero  hindi ako tumigil sa pag BF sa kanya directly. Ok naman baby ko, hindi naman siya nahawa sakin, and happy ako na napapasa ko sa kanya mga anti-bodies at sana lalong lumakas immune system ng bebe ko. Nawala yung lagnat ko on the 3rd day pero yung ubo ko tumagal ng more than a week, still tuloy tuloy pa rin ako sa pag BF.

glad to know that you're ok now.

ako naman nun sis asar na asar din uminom ng uminom ng mga gamot kasi pinagbusuntis ko pa lang sya nkpag take na ko ng antibiotic tpos ngaun BF ako sa kanya panay inom ko pa din ng gamot.. nkakay amot lang noh. hehe.. syempre di mo pa din maalis ang worry kahit pa sabihin na safe un but still gamot pa din un and we all know that every med has its side effects.. wala lang ganun talaga taung mga mommies eh.. lalo na taung BFing moms as much as possible syempre ayaw natin may take na gamot pero yoko din naman pa mag stop mag BF.. kaya talagang recently naisip ko to be extra careful with our health.. iyan pa nga regret ko mommy kasi during the time na ngkasakit ko aoround 1mo pa ng bebe ko nagstop ako mag BF kasi di pa ko SP mom nun di pa ko nkkakabasa sa net bout BFing.. naku nag stop tga ko at hanap kami kahit no milk lang sa malapit na drugstore eh bonna lang yung andun na nbili nung housemate ko.. hasy, mali pala un kasi mas dapat pa pala i-BF si baby nun kasi super advantage sa kanya un coz of the antibodies na mkukuha niya pag may sakit tau. well atleast now im well-informed with that so if not for me atleast mgagamit ng ibang masasabihan ko di ba.. cheers mommy!  =)

It is okay to breastfeed when you are sick :)

Don't worry about whether your kid will get sick too because chances are he or she was already exposed to whatever you had before you started showing symptoms (headaches, fever, etc)

Hi sis, me too, nagka-mastitis ako and i've to take antibiotic, cefalexin yung sa akin..for 7 days yun.  I think it depends sa antibiotic na take mo. In my case okay lang to continue breastfeeding, my doctor told me that it will help to cure my mastitis.  As for how many days or hours that a medicine stays in our system, its 48 hours according to my doctor.

So I guess it depends sa gamot na i-take mo, might as well ask your doctor sis. Take care.

sabi nila (as in my pedia and OB  gyne), it is not that safe so better daw if I take natural remedies.  yun ang sabi nila ha as I have no experience on this, it's good to consider their suggestion. if masakit yung boobs dahil hindi maka breastfeed, just express the milk and throw it away.  then breastfeed na lang when you're done with your medication.  isipin mo na baka ok din na simulan ng i-train si baby na mag bottle feed while you're on medication.

Ang alam ko hindi ka pedeng magbreastfeed kung nag take ka ng anti biotic.  You have to wait ata for a few days.  Nasabi sa kin yan dati kasi breastfed din sa baby.  Best option is to ask the pedia or the OB or whoever gave you the antibiotic kung safe siya for breastfeeding moms.   :)

Just got a tooth extraction and my dentist prescribed me antibiotic. This was the same antibiotic that my OB gave me a couple of months ago for my cough and colds. Okay naman daw even if I'm breastfeeding (though hindi nga lang ako exclusively bfeeding).

Post by: Kimps08 on November 20, 2012, 04:56:03 pm
share ko lang mga mommies.  if you're sick with ubo, sipon, fever please do not stop breastfeeding. your body is producing antibodies that is passed on to our babies through our milk.  there are a lot of medicines that are found safe for breastfeeding moms. our babies are already exposed to the viruses long before tayo nagkakasakit so why stop?  if you need to take medicines, ask your doctor if its safe. if not, ask for another brand that's safe.   share ko lang. i breastfed my son even when i had measles. :)
Title: Re: sick Mommy, medicines and breastfeeding
Post by: Henry's Mom on November 20, 2012, 05:23:16 pm
@Kimps08; I was gonna say sana exactly what you posted. But just to reiterate. DO NOT STOP BREASTFEEDING, unless otherwise specified by your doctor. Again, your body is producing antibodies when you are sick that are passed on to your baby whenever you breastfeed him/her.

The most common cause of cough and colds are viruses so no need to take antibiotics immediately. Lots of fluids lang muna. Water therapy ika-nga. :) Antibiotics only work on bacterial infections. Besides, we are not suppose to take any antibiotics without a doctor's prescription. Why? Because if you take an antibiotic and you don't take it properly, your body develops resistance. Meaning, hindi na tatalab ang antibiotics na yan sa katawan mo the next time you would need to take it and you would need na to take a stronger kind of antibiotics.

And if you indeed have a bacterial infection and self-medicated and did not do it properly. This bacteria could develop resistance. Pano na lang kung sa resistant bacteria nahawa ang baby mo? Pati sya strong antibiotics na ang kailangan.

Yes, mommies, tinatakot ko kayo kasi its not right to self-medicate. Please take the time to consult your doctors. And don't forget to take your vitamins. :D

Hello Mommies,

Nagkasakit last Saturday lang, continue pa rin ang pag-BF ko kahit na ganun, malunggay juice lang ininum ko tas Bioflu (2) then after that puro Ascorbic Acid, Iron, Water and Matatamis lang para bumalik agad ang energy ko. Nun sobrang sakit ng ulo ko naman nag Mefanamic Acid ako kasi un yung reseta ng OB ko bago ako ma-discharge sa hospital after giving birth eh. I asked her before kung wala yung effect sa milk ko for baby, un daw talaga iniinom so I know na safe un...

Hi, kaninang umaga galing kami sa seminar ng marriage namin ni hubby. And isa sa mga topic dun is yung breast feeding whike may sipon trangkaso or ubo. The facilitator said it's totally OKAY to breastfeed while having sipon, ubo or trangkaso. Hindi daw agad mahahawaan si baby through breast feeding. But when taking meds, hanggang paracetamol lang si mommy unless mag bigay pa si doc ng iba pang gamot na pwede sa nag papa breastfeed. But if you want na mawala muna pansamantalaga yung sakit sa Ulo or katawan if meron ka nun better take paracetamol na agad para hindi na lumala habang hindi pa kayo nakakapag pa check up. :)
