This is a difficult question to answer as there is insufficient information about hand foot and mouth disease and breastfeeding. Hand foot and mouth disease is very catchy indeed and is easily passed on to others. Your baby is at particular risk as your baby was born prematurely.Your milk as such should be safe but touching your baby while breast feeding will transmit the virus infection.You should wear a sterile mask that doctors wear and also wear gloves while breastfeeeding or even changing your baby's nappy. Wash your hands often.
