Calil VMLT, Krebs VLJ, Carvalho WB. Guidance on breastfeeding during the Covid-19 pandemic. Rev Assoc Med Bras (1992). 2020 Apr;66(4):541-546. doi: 10.1590/1806-9282.66.4.541. PMID: 32578793.

These recommendations aim to provide guidance on breastfeeding for mothers with suspected or confirmed Covid-19.

We performed a review of the recent medical literature on breastfeeding mothers with suspected or confirmed Covid-19, focusing on the neonatal period.

We analyzed 20 recent publications on breastfeeding, Covid-19, and its transmission through breastmilk. We presented possible options for breastfeeding and their consequences for the mother and the child.

All maternal decisions in relation to breastfeeding are justifiable since the infection by Covid-19 is still poorly known. However, puerperal women and their families must be very well informed to make a conscious choice based on the information available in the literature so far.
