    If your DD2 is breastfed that will protect her to a certain degree and if she is not the antibodies that you have been passing to her via the placenta will help protect her too.
    Try not to worry, keep you eye on things and if she does get a temp seek medical help immediately.
    Best of luck, I hope your DD1 gets well soon. xx

    If she does get a temp, reduce her clothing and a tepid bath. But do not make her so cool that she shivers as this will actually increase her temp.
