Breastfeeding and Covid 19 Click to get info
The benefits of breastfeeding outweigh the risks of coronavirus to the health of your baby!
Even amidst the current covid-19 pandemic, breastfeeding is still the safest way to feed your baby, it will build a strong immune system and protect them from other infections you have had in the past.
Women with symptoms or confirmed coronavirus can still breastfeed as long as they wash their hands before feeding and avoiding coughing and or sneezing on the baby.
There is no evidence that the virus is passed on in breastmilk.
Some women choose to wear a facemask while breast feeding or to express their breastmilk and ask a trusted family member to feed their baby. If choosing this option or thorough a pump hand hygiene remains equally important.
Contact HENRY’s Infant Feeding helpline if you have any queries around breastfeeding your child
