hi all, i think i know the answer to this, but i just want to confirm: my nursing toddler had the coxsackie virus (hand/foot/mouth disease- very contagious) last week, and she was unable to nurse for 54 hours. however, she did latch on and try to nurse several times. i am not pumping much anymore, but had to pump several times in those 2 days (so the pumped milk could have potentially had her germs in it). the milk has been frozen for almost a week now. is it safe to donate? i'm assuming the virus was killed in the freezing process, but i don't know much about that particular virus.
we donate occasionally to a ~10 month old baby we found here on milkshare.
