What are some things you did that you feel helped prevent them from getting sick? I have a newborn and am so afraid of her getting sick sick. I keep her covered while out in public and don't let strangers hold her she got minimal breast milk in hospital due to complications but she did get some. Also if I got my flu shot while pregnant doesn't that help her immune system?
The only people allowed around my newborn winter kids had to have their flu shots. I also tried to keep them indoors and everybody had to wash their hands. Lysoling TV remotes, phones, door knobs etc also helped. My winter baby is 13 months and (knock on wood) has only been sick once.
I had my 4th baby in January. I never got a flu shot, really I never did anything different than I did with my summer babies. People held her, I took her out to the store with me etc.. and she is 3 now and has yet to be sick!
