My children, 3.5 and 1.5 are rarely sick, at most, 3 times per year. When exposed to anything, they either fight it off successfully or they get a much milder version of it than their infected counterparts. There is a new baby in the family. She's now a little more than 2 months. After a ridiculous family fight on vacation about my children's vaccination status, the information spread like wildfire. We received a call asking us to get a babysitter. My husband was outraged, offended and confused. Bring your germs, but leave your babies?? Other babies in the family are welcomed at this party. They are less than 1.5 years old and not fully vaccinated either. One is a day care baby and has been sick every time we see or hear from him. My husband and I always use a common sense approach and never bring our sick children around others. Our vigilance increases dramatically with a newborn around. There has already been much discussion amongst family members about this. Our brother and his family will not be attending since we are not welcome. He's the only one who took a stand on our behalf. How would you feel about this and what would you do?
