Yes you can feed. Masking and sanitizing is always necessary. Breast milk does not contain corona virus.

Yes, she can feed the baby after handwashing and wearing double mask. But since the baby is 18 months old, she is not dependent on mother's feed. If she eats other things well, then you can think about keeping her separate. Because she is 18 months old, stopping the breastfeed for few days wouldn't cause any harm.
