I believe I have a cold (it could be allergies but I have never had them before). I know it is ok to feed her with my milk even if I am sick (probably due to the antibodies), but what about freezing the milk? Since freezing can destroy some of the antibodies will it be safe to give her my frozen milk later on? I just don't know........help

It's fine to give her. I think freezing does destroy most of the anitbodies, but it's still better for your baby than formula in the long run. Don't worry about it.
