Is it safe to breastfeed with Epstein Barr Virus

I am 5 months pregnant with my second child, and I am debating whether or not to breastfeed my baby because i have Epstein Barr. I was just wondering if anyone knew if it was safe or not. I haven't found any info about it. If anyone knows, that would be great.

  • i'm trying to research it for you.. is there a risk already, meaning does EBV cross the placenta?

  • thats a really good question. I just found out I have it and the drs aren't sure when I got it but I BF my daughter and she doesn't have it. The dr thinks I got it in HS and I got preggo a few years after that.
