Priyadarshini it's quiet usual that babies feeding reduces during illness. I would suggest that you should ensure that your baby's nose is clear  which will help the baby to take breast feed better.

Just be patient and monitor weather baby is passing urine 6-8 times at least in 24 hours. As your baby's health will improve, simultaneously feeding will also get better.
