    Default Unwell 13 month old - will 12 day old get it?

    Ahhhh my DD has come down with a bug that's doing the rounds apparently - fever, cold symptoms and diarrohea. DS is only 12 days old and I guess it's inevitable that he'll getit, which worries me 'cos he is too young to take anything for it. He is BF - will this help protect him at all? I HATE it when kids get sick!



    Ah shucks I meant to post this in the General Baby and Toddler thread - can a mod please move it for me. Sorry!

    I was exactly the same, it worried me having an 8 year old getting sick and a newborn. I think you'll find he should be protected by bf. I noticed with my daughter, she only started picking things up at about 5/6 months. I guess nature designs it so it's ok, as there are heaps of families with many siblings ( i often thought about that and it made me feel better)!! Good luck, hope it goes quickly and bub is fine xoxo

    I agree, you'll probably find Ned will not be affected by the bug & bF him will certainly give him antibodies to fight off any bugs!

    Poor Soph & Poor Lucie..... But Ned will be fine!!!
