Afternoon Madam, I want to ask, what if a breastfeeding mother catches the Singapore flu? is it still permissible to breastfeed the baby? I happen to be a mother with a 2 year old child. And the plan still wants to breastfeed until they pass S3 +. What should I do? How to prevent it? Is the handling of babies under 1 year old if the mother has the Singapore flu? thank you,

Good Afternoon Bun …
The current Singapore flu is indeed hot, so the topic of conversation. Mothers need to know that the Singapore flu is caused by a virus that is very contagious. Among them can be from the splashing of liquid from the nose when sneezing, saliva that comes out when coughing, fluid from blisters, and surfaces contaminated with the patient’s feces / feces.
When breastfeeding a baby, the mother is of course very close to the baby and the risk of contracting the baby is very large. So you should wear a mask when breastfeeding or you can express breastmilk and give it using a spoon until the mother is cured. If the mother’s child is 2 years old, weaning is one of the best ways because 2 years of age the child is enough to be weaned.
