Should I breastfeed if I have the rotavirus?

Dr. Roy Benaroch
Pediatrics 27 years experience
Yes: Yes, you should. Drink extra fluids, and be sure to wash your hands well. Babies routinely receive vaccinations against rotavirus, so your child should be at least partially protected after his or her first set of vaccines at 2 mos.

Yes: Ms will not affect your ability to nurse your baby, will not affect the course of your ms, and will not "transmit" anything harmful to your baby, provided that you clear your medications with your pediatrician.

A member asked:

Is it necessary to breastfeed from both sides in one feeding?

7 doctor answers11 doctors weighed in
Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
No: Not absolutely and certainly not mandatory for the baby, especially if mom's supply is really strong. Most people will recommend some feeding off the other side, however, if only to 'take the edge off' of the fullness you might experience waiting until the next round. In short, if the baby is gaining strong weight and mom isnt uncomfortable, then it really doesn't matter.
A member asked:

How can I resume breastfeeding once my milk has dried up?

Give it a go!: You should consider asking your doctor for a referral to a lactation consultant for helpful tips when you re-start. Your doctor may also suggest medication to help you re-lactate. You may find it difficult in the beginning, but it certainly can be done. Good luck!
