My poor almost four year old woke up with a 102.5 fever (cough started yesterday).

The last few days he has been kissing and holding his newborn sister (1.5 weeks old).

Anyone have their newborn now or previous children exposed to sickness like this? Anyhing I can do? What happens if she does catch this?

I am really worried, being that she is so little. Any advice would be helpful.

My 8 year old got the flu (influenza a) when baby was almost 3 weeks old. DH got the flu the next day after 8 year old. 8 year old is still recovering, 2 weeks later. Baby and I both remained healthy. Lots of hand washing and tons of nursing were the tricks for us.


I hope your older is feeling better soon and nobody else catches it!


My ds was diagnosed with the flu on a thursday. Their pediatrician wanted to see both ds's the next day. He wanted to check out the baby and make sure he wasn't showing any signs (he wasn't- breathing was perfect, chest was clear, etc). He said at the first sign we were to call him immediately.
