Discuss possible barriers that affect the breastfeeding experience for mom and baby. An infant with galactosemia (such infants cannot digest the lactose in milk) • Herpes lesions on a mother’s nipples • Maternal diet is nutrient restricted, preventing quality milk production • Maternal exposure to radioactive compounds (e.g., during thyroid testing) • Breast cancer • Maternal active, untreated tuberculosis, hepatitis B or C, cytomegalovirus, or human immunodeficiency syndrome • Maternal active, untreated varicella. Once the infant has been given varicella zoster immunoglobulin, the infant can receive expressed breast milk if there are no lesions on the breast. Within 5 days of the appearance of the rash, maternal antibodies are produced, and thus breastfeeding could be beneficial in providing passive immunity against varicella (Sadeharju et al., 2007) • Mothers receiving antimetabolites or chemotherapeutic agents • Mothers receiving prescribed medications that would be harmful to an infant such as lithium or methotrexate • A mother lives in an area where environmental contaminants can be carried via breast milk to the infant (AAP Committee on Drugs, 2002) 5.
