    Hello, Your profile shows you are a male client but your question appears it's coming from a female. Yes! You can infect your newborn child with the HBV through breast milk. That why it is strongly advised to immunize your child against this disease. Once he/she gets this vaccine, he/she is protected. Hope this helps. Take care
