Contraindications to breastfeeding

The only true contraindications to breastfeeding are the following:

  • infants with classic galactosemia (galactose 1-phosphate uridyltransferase deficiency)
  • In the US, mothers who are infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Refer to the policy statement for other conditions that may require further investigation

 

Breastfeeding is NOT contraindicated with the following conditions:

  • infants born to mothers who are hepatitis B surface antigen-positive
  • mothers who are infected with hepatitis C virus (persons with hepatitis C virus antibody or hepatitis C virus-RNA-positive blood)
  • mothers who are febrile (unless cause is a contraindication outlined in the previous section)
  • mothers who have been exposed to low-level environmental chemical agents
  • mothers who are seropositive carriers of cytomegalovirus (CMV) (not recent converters if the infant is term)
  • mothers who smoke tobacco (though they should be encouraged to quit) or have an occasional celebratory drink
  • the great majority of babies with jaundice or hyperbilirubinemia can continue to be breastfed without interruption
