I have a cold and I have been breastfeeding my son. I heard that I should not breastfeed if I am sick. I tried giving my son a little bit of formula but he will not take it.

Unless you are medication that would be harmful to the baby then by all means continue to nurse. I have been nursing my 3rd child for almost 21 months now. I have nursed her when I had the flu & could hardly keep anything down. She spent all of her time with me & still did not manage to catch it.
