With all due respect Dr., as a microbiologist & Physicians Assistant I have to partially disagree with you on this one. We don't yet know if breastfeeding is a safe recommendation. Traditionally it has been an invaluable tool in the development of a baby's immune system but we're dealing with a new virus. In limited studies on women with COVID-19 and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV), the virus has not been detected in breast milk; however we do not know whether mothers with COVID-19 can transmit the virus via breast milk.
I think at this point it's simply a personal choice vs an educated decision!
Thanks for all your hard work on this & other.pressing issues
