Guys, this is Japan, have you ever seen a mother popping out her boobs and starting breastfeeding? Of course not, they use a cape and they do it discreetly. And I cant phantom why would anybody have a problem with that.

Appalled to hear that japan recommended formula for the most important time to be exclusively breastfeeding

I'm sure there are people who are horrified at the thought of seeing a woman's breasts in public, but I am fine with it. If only that were the most important problem we had to deal with today.

Of course it is, people are just looking for problems now. As long as breastfeeding is done in private and not in public it’s fine

I agree. If Mom has it, the baby is being exposed to it, breastfeeding or not, but breast milk is healthy for kids.

This is certainly an interesting issue.

However, if the mother of a newborn has a transmissible illness, isn't it likely that she will expose her baby to that illness, whether she breastfeeds or not? Therefore, the question of exposing the baby to Covid-19 through breastfeeding becomes almost moot.
