Here is a LLL page which refers to this process, but not detailed. It may be useful to print out though.

This page mentions that in mothers who EP, their breast does not have the contact of suckling to make specific antibodies to a baby's illness. Obviously, the mother is still making and providing antibodies for her own past illnesses.

That's right. You can't keep a baby in a cucoon.

Hi Spud- I think that would be a workable solution if the baby were bigger- she is only 5 months old- or brother was younger/nursing more. She really can't assign sides unless she wants to be REALLY lopsided LOL!
