Thread: has anyone had shingles while breastfeed

    Default has anyone had shingles while breastfeed

    has anyone experienced breastfeeding with an outbreak of shingles? I am not 100% sure I have them but it is appearing that way. I am wondering if you took medicine and continued to breastfeed, or did you stop and formula feed? If you continued feeding what meds did you take and did baby have any reactions?

    Also, did you hold your baby at all? How much contact did you have?
    Any other insight you can provide is so appreciated. I am really stressed about this.
