We're not lacking in supply, so it's not an issue of desperately needing the milk. And the baby is still nursing, I just have a bit of an over-supply.

Thank in advance!
Keep it!!! It will keep your baby from getting sick from you!!

Definately use it! Try to use as much of it as you can while the bug is still in the house to give LO an immunity boost!

Honestly, I don't know the answer, but I always still used it.
I totally do that too!
