Breastfeeding and staph infections

A real health risk for new mothers


During your pregnancy, your doctor probably warned you about additional precautions you should take against certain illnesses that pregnant women are more susceptible to getting than other adults are.

For example, pregnant women are encouraged to get a flu shot because of the severe complications that can arise when a pregnant woman and her developing child get the flu.

While breastfeeding, you should also be careful of certain threats to your health, as you are more prone to certain things than you were before. Staph infections are one of these things, as women who are breastfeeding are more likely to get this type of infection than most other healthy adults.



What is staph?


Staph infections are a type of bacterial infection that results from a fairly common type of bacteria, staphylococcus aureas. Staph infections can have very mild side effects but they can also develop into severe medical complications.



Preventing staph infections while breastfeeding


As staph bacteria can be found on the skin of about one in four healthy adults, the best way to prevent staph infections is to keep those bacteria from getting into open wounds and killing it whenever possible. Good hygiene is the best defense against bacteria infections of this nature.



Steps you should take to minimize the likelihood of a staph infection while breastfeeding include:



  • Frequent hand washing with an anti-bacterial soap

  • Sterilize all breast pumping equipment regularly

  • Clean and bandage any wounds properly to prevent contamination

  • Change bras regularly, especially if your nipples are sore and chaffed
