Pediatricians Moisés Chencinski explains in which cases or breastfeeding should not happen:
HIV: As the virus can be passed in milk, infected mothers should not breastfeed. They can, however, feed their babies with pasteurized human milk, available in milk banks. "The donated milk is obtained from mothers free of HIV and other infectious diseases, then it is pasteurized and processed, through standard procedures"He explains.
Hepatitis B: If the mother is infected with hepatitis B, the baby should also be immunized against the disease as soon as possible. Vaccinate the child soon after childbirth is highly effective in prevention. "The hepatitis B virus has been detected in human milk, but breastfeeding does not increase the risk of infant infection. No need to delay the onset of breastfeeding until the child is immunized against the disease"Says the doctor.
Hepatitis C: Maternal infection with hepatitis C is also compatible with breastfeeding. "Breastfeeding may even help prevent the spread of hepatitis C mother to baby by providing antibodies passed through breast milk"He says.
Tuberculosis: Mothers with tuberculosis can breastfeed if they are taking the appropriate medication to treat the disease. If left untreated, they should not breastfeed or come in direct contact with their newborn children until they get the proper medication and not in infectious stage of the disease. "In most cases, they can breastfeed safely two weeks after starting appropriate treatment and after the release of the doctor. You can also start pumping her milk shortly after delivery to offer it to the baby until they can breastfeed directly"He says.
Breast cancer: If the mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in the past but has been treated, it can feed the baby, even if it has undergone radiotherapy. "It is very common for these women consider their small milk production, however, we recommend discussing breastfeeding options with the doctor", Guides.
Silicone prostheses: In the past, there was much concern about the safety of breastfeeding after breast implant silicone implants, but there is no scientific evidence that the implants may hinder breastfeeding. "In most cases, plastic surgery for breast augmentation does not significantly interfere in the ability to breastfeed, since the nipples have not been removed and / or the ducts have been cut. What can happen is that, in some cases increase of breasts, women may have underdeveloped breast tissue, which can interfere with the proper production of breast milk"He explains.
Breast reduction: This surgery presents more likely to interfere with breastfeeding, especially if the nozzles were repositioned, resulting in a total cut of milk ducts or nerves. But there are many women who had breast reduction and are able to breastfeed. "The longer you spend after surgery, the more likely that breastfeeding, or at least partial breastfeeding, to be successful"He says.
Diseases routine: Even the healthiest mothers sometimes get sick. "If the mother is temporarily prevented by the doctor to nurse because of a serious illness or while taking certain medications, she should keep her milk supply, removing it with a hand pump or an electric pump. Obviously, this process does not equal the experience of real breastfeeding, but it is still best that the baby receive its mother's milk than milk donated by another person or formulas"Recommended the doctor.
