Can my baby contract rabies from my breastmmilk?

I was scratched by a cat and don't know if it was Rabid. (Was friendly just trying to swipe food from me) I started my vaccine today but have breastfed my daughter since then and want to make sure it couldn't have gotten into my milk.

Can I continue to breastfeed through the vaccine

Hi ! it is nice to hear that you are doing breastfeeding to your daughter .Breastfeeding can provide more nutrients  and vitamins to make your baby more healthier.In your case I think You can continue breastfeeding because you are already take the vaccine so there would be no risk of transmission.
