It's not from breastfeeding. Even the very rare babies that have sensitivities to what moms eat don't get rashes all over. Maybe a diaper rash from stool but not all over. It's something else. Babies should stay home the first 6-8 weeks or so because they are born with very weak immune system. If the baby has gone out or been around kids it could be an infection. Kids can not have a rash or look sick and still give a baby an infection.
http://www.kellymom.com/ is a great breastfeeding website. You can call La Leche League 24/7.
