The threat of a resurgence in swine flu (caused by the H1N1 virus) adds another compelling reason to support breast feeding in babies over formula milk. It is widely accepted that babies who are breastfed suffer illness less badly than babies who are not, and fall ill less often too. Breast milk passes antibodies on to your baby which gives them a natural immune boost over formula fed babies, and swine flu is no different from any other viral illness in this respect. If you fall ill with swine flu then you should take precautions to try to prevent passing it on to your baby; your doctor may even recommend that you wear a face mask during feeding which is obviously disheartening but will only be for a limited time. However, you should continue to feed your baby breast milk as best as possible, express milk if it makes it easier.
