Hepatitis mothers: All infants born to HBV infected mothers should receive Hep B immunoglobin and first dose of hep B vaccine within 12 hrs of birth, The second dose at 1-2 months and the third dose at 6months. Breastfeeding is safe for Heb B and Hep C exposed mothers while they need to avoid cracking of the nipple and bleeding. You can discuss with your ob-gyn. Good luck.
