When Breastfeeding is not Advisable

When should a mother not be allowed to breastfeed her baby

Breastfeeding is not an option if the mother has cancer and is being treated with radioactive compounds and anti-cancer drugs. It may also not be possible if the mother has been hospitalized due to a serious illness. 
 

Can a mother continue breastfeeding if she is ill

However, a mother can continue breastfeeding her baby even if she has infections like infective hepatitis, typhoid, cholera, tuberculosis, or leprosy. When she is unwell, a mother can feed her baby while lying down. 
 

If the mother becomes pregnant again, should she stop breastfeeding

No.  There is no harm in breastfeeding a baby when the mother is menstruating or if she is halfway through another pregnancy. If the mother is eating well, she can breastfeed throughout her pregnancy.  However, it is extremely important that she take calcium and iron supplements, because she is now meeting the nutritional requirements of three people - her baby, her unborn baby, and herself.
