Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

CMV or cytomegalovirus is a fairly common infection (especially in children) and is actually not dangerous. Most people who are infected with CMV do not experience any symptoms or only experience mild symptoms and this virus does not cause long-term complications in most people. This infection is only dangerous for certain groups, such as pregnant women (because it can transmit to their babies and their babies can experience various complications during pregnancy or postpartum), babies born prematurely to mothers who suffer from CMV, and people with weakened immune systems (for example sufferers HIV, people who use immune system-suppressing drugs, people who undergo organ transplants, etc.).


CMV can indeed be transmitted through breast milk, but breastfeeding even in newborns (full term babies) is still permitted. Therefore, if your baby is breastfed at the age of 4-5 months, there is a big possibility that there will be no adverse effects on your baby even if your baby is infected with CMV. This virus is actually not a virus that is easily transmitted either. However, once infected with CMV, this virus will always be present in the body (will not disappear), but will be dormant (sleeping). In this dormant state, the virus will not cause any symptoms.


If you are still worried, you can still take your child to the pediatrician for an examination. But if so far your child's growth and development is good and goes according to his age, there is nothing you need to worry about and examination for CMV in your child is not needed.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
