I am feeding mother of a 22 days old daughter. Is it true that a mother shouldn't feed her baby just after taking bath or washing hair as it turns her milk cold and baby can catch cold this way?

No mother can feed anytime and taking bath will not make breast milk cold and it will remain in body temperature
You can feed your baby as an when required in any condition of your body without the fear for catching cold to the baby
