My friend is nursing her 7 month old since birth, is the baby safe from a sibling having chickenpox?
Do Not rely on That: Although the baby definitely gets an immunity boost from nursing, it is not a 100% guarantee for protection from specific infections.

After 2-3 months of age, his "maternal" antibodies start fading away, and he is vulnerable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
