Netilat Yadayim for breastfeeding


Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

12 Iyyar 5767
1. When the baby wakes up at night for a feeding, do I need to wash my hands (NETILA) before I touch him? Even if the baby’s location doesn’t require me to get out of bed to tend to him?
No need to do Netilah if you wake up only to feed your baby.
