Does a woman that nursed need to wash her hands afterwards? Is she allowed to say a Brachah while feeding (if she needs to wash afterwards, does that prohibit her from saying a Brachah until she washes)?

Usually after nursing it is very likely a mother will have touched a part of her body that requires Netilas Yadayim. However, if the mother was careful not to touch any uncovered parts of her body, then she does not need to do Netilas Yadayim.



See Shulchan Aruch Admur Hazaken 4:18 (Mahadura Kama). Shu”t Levushei Mordechai I O.C. 21.
