Breastfeeding helps prevent some diseases whereas, with others, it mitigates effects and with others it has no effect on either or just one or the other. confused yet? LOL
Hib and PCV are two vaccines that prevent bacterias that cause pretty serious illness when they go invasive. Breastfeeding shows a lot of protection when it comes to these bacterias, though its not 100%. So these are two you might want to look into.
Breastfeeding will not provide sufficient immunity, even with natural infection in the mother, past infancy for the diseases contained in the MMR vaccine.
Breastfeeding does not seem to affect pertussis infection very much. Antibodies seem to wane too fast, are not in high amounts, etc with that one.
Breastfeeding can help prevent and mitigate the severity of rotavirus.
so you kinda get the idea...some help, some not, etc.
If I was unable to breastfeed, I would be looking more into PCV and rotavirus, whereas right now we do not do those. I would not delay hib and I would do DTaP as normal.
