Yes, you should continue breastfeeding even if you are down food poisoning as there is no risk to the baby. Your milk will not transmit your illness to baby coz, it has antibodies. Also, do inform the doctor that you are breastfeeding and the medication he/she gives, should be safe for breastfeeding mothers. Take care and rest well.

Yes, you can still breastfeed even though you are suffering from food poisoning. Make sure your doctor gives you meds that do no hamper the same and keep yourself well hydrated. Take care!

Make sure though you drink lots and lots of water because you need double hydration for food poisoning and producing milk. Also, make sure to wash your hands before handling baby :)
