Is it possible to continue breastfeeding if the mother or baby becomes flu? What are the symptoms of H1N1 pandemic influenza? How to treat your child? When to call a doctor urgently? You can read about this in our article.

If you are ill with the mother or toddler in H1N1

If the mother gets flu, put on a mask to heal! You can get a lip mask that has been soaked with viral material so you can get rid of the skin-stick mumps. Breastfeeding should not be suspended as breast milk does not pass into infants! However, the antibodies produced in the mother against the H1N1 virus are incorporated into breast milk, so the baby's body is temporarily (!) Protected from infection, and there are other immune boosters in the breast milk that are found in the baby.If the baby's mother gets the H1N1 virus, then breastfeeding is more important, because it takes time for the body to produce the antibodies it needs to overcome the virus. The same is true when the mother is vaccinated against both seasonal and H1N1, also known as swine flu, because there are antibodies in the body that also help the baby to overcome the infection as soon as possible. It is important to know, however, that breast milk is not equivalent to vaccination - so if a child is over, his or her protection can be lifted by vaccination.
In the case of baby under 6 months of age, breastfeeding as a rule does not require extra fluid refreshment if you are breastfeeding and have a nappy. If the baby is incapacitated or does not pee properly, increasing the fluid intake may be necessary. You should definitely try to do this with breast milk, but if you do not accept it, you need to ensure that your baby is refilled with boiled and cooled water. If a child notices symptoms of rash, consult your pediatrician immediately, and a 6-12 month old baby will require 5-8 dl of breast milk per day for healthy development and for the body to respond. If there is no alternative to breastfeeding, give the baby an immune boosting formula at 1 year of age, because its composition is most similar to breast milk and strengthens the baby's body.
Under no circumstances should you breast-feed your mother's milk! Breastfeeding is not recommended for infants under the age of 1, and is not recommended for babies up to the age of 2-3 years: it does not burden the body, nor does it contain any immune boosters.

Symptoms of H1N1 influenza

Playback The disease usually has the usual, characteristic symptoms of influenza and, in most cases, it is self-healing. Sudden onset, the most commonly observed symptoms are the following:
  • lбz,
  • hidegrбzбs,
  • izomfбjdalom,
  • fбradtsбg,
  • fejfбjбs

Nasal congestion, runny nose, pharynx, cough were also observed. Gastrointestinal symptoms, such as diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting, have been frequently observed with the new H1N1 influenza.
The onset of the disease is usually 1-4 days, with a maximum of 7 days.
Unfortunately, experience has shown that the new H1N1 virus is more likely to cause infections in children than seasonal influenza, and the number of fatalities of the new virus in children has been higher in the United States, for example.


The most important thing to do is to keep the sick child at home, relax, soothe fever, and drink plenty of fluids. So we recommend the infant well over several times with breast milk, lacking in boiled and cooled water.
Infants over 6 months of age should also be counted as incontinence. At this age, it is recommended that you consume 5-8 decilitres of breast milk, and the diet will be of special significance in the absence of this. Your toddler may prefer breast milk or formula rather than "solid" meals.
If your baby does not accept breast milk or formula that is also rich in nutritional supplements, you should try to use the liquid with boiled and cooled water, frozen fruit or fruit. Do not give him sugary drinks as these will only increase the transience.
Do not let a child with fever get together for 1 day after the fever has passed! In fact, according to some experts, children can be infected longer than adults - this must be taken into account before releasing a child who has become sick.


In infants, talk to your doctor about fever suppression. Larger babies can get many antipyretic medications without any need in the drug store, with a variety of active ingredients. These drugs have both an analgesic effect and an analgesic effect. The use of salicylate-containing supplements is not recommended for children with influenza, as it may cause rare but severe heart disease. When selecting a drug, consideration should also be given to known drug allergies. It is important to know that many different fantasy names (medicines to relieve flu symptoms), over-the-counter medications, essentially contain the same paracetamol, so you may overdose
You can read more about Fever Anesthesia in the Flammable Status article in our article and in the Diseases section.
It can be used along with medication or, if accepted by the child, instead of the medication. It is recommended that fever be monitored regularly after completion of the antipyretic medication for at least 24 hours to ensure that the child does not become infected in any way.
