You wash hands, keep them apart as you can etc.....either the baby will get sick or won't. There is only so much you can do.
I lived the worst case scenario this year. My baby was born and a couple of my older children had a virus. headache, fever...some ibuprofen, fluids, and some rest and they were fine. Well, baby caught it and he had viral meningitis and we spent 72 hours in the hospital on a monitored unit. :P He was an exclusively breastfed, healthy full term neonate. No bacterial infection but I'm glad we were in the hospital anyway as he stopped nursing for two days as he was just too sick, he didn't even open his eyes. :cry
He is 2 1/2 months old now and fat, happy and developmentally normal.
