Question:I'm breastfeeding mother of 1 month old.. having slight fever and body ache.. can i take Calpol? And can i feed my baby?
Answer: Yes dear
U can continue breastfeeding ur baby if u are in fever, cold or cough. There ia no risk associated with it. Breastmulk provides specific antibodies that babies need to fight infections.
Breastfeed can actually protect your baby from the infection that your body is fighting.
So, dont worry and continue breastfeeding.
Add one teaspoon of tulsi (basil) leaves to a cup of hot water and steep for five minutes. Drink it thrice or four times a day
Add one teaspoon of mustard seeds to a cup of hot water and steep for five minutes and then drink.
If fever does not go with above remedies then better u can consult ur doctor

Question:I am 3months and 24days baby mother, i have breast milk but i found that by breast got a red scratch,is it a sign of danger
Answer: No it is not danger if the rash is on breast it might be due to excess heat or itching. If the nipple are red or have crack then it indicate inflammation but it gets better by applying freshly expressed breastmilk. If rashes on breast apply moisturizer or coconut oil it will reduce redness and itching.
