Baby with Oral Herpes & Breastfeeding
My toddler son got oral herpes from an active cold sore on my lip. He has a lesion on his gum. He is still nursing & it is currently the only thing that is giving him comfort & nutrition during this outbreak.
Can the virus spread to my breasts while I am nursing him? What are the consequences of it spreading there?
I am getting conflicting info. on whether I should nurse or not.
