It contains antibodies from the mother that may help the baby to increase resistance against infections but not all contagious disease. Breast feed newborn do not have protection from diseases like whooping cough, polio and Hepatitis B. and there vaccinations available.
Now a days, there are expectant mothers are now unaware that she is a carrier of Hepatitis B and unknowingly pass it on to her child through breast milk. Infants who catch hepatitis B from their mothers at birth are at greater risk of suffering from liver cancer or liver failure later in life. Infant vaccination- no exceptions, even if mother and baby appear to be in good health- is the only sure method of guaranteeing protection against the disease.
