Neonatal Meningitis

My nephew has Meningitis after 8 days being born. Apparently he was infected by his mother during virginal delivery.  The mother also had two rounds of high fever and infection and went thru antibiotic treatment.  Now she is discharged.  The baby still in ICU and going thru intensive antibiotic treatment.  Can she still breastfeed the baby?  Pls. help!

Dear firesheep,

The doctors will tell you if the mother should or not breastfeed the baby. Until the antibiotics are completely cleared out of her system breastfeeding might be contraindicated. In such cases only doctors are competent enough to suggest anything.

Wish you all the best.
Regards, John.
