I don't know if I'm putting this in the right place, but I need HELP!
I am about 38 weeks pregnant with baby # 4. My 2yo is still nursing and not planning on stopping any time soon.
Here's my problem, he has coxsackie. You know, that fun virus with the sores in the mouth?! I need to know what to do if the baby is born before he's better. I've heard that it's contagious for a long time.
I've never been pregnant this long(I've only gone as far as 36-37 weeks with the other 3), so I'm pretty sure it won't be too much longer.
There's no way I would wean him now-nursing seems to comfort him so much(milk or no milk), but I'm afraid of making the baby sick. I read that it can be life-threatening to an infant.
Has anyone been in a similar situation or have any advice for me?
I would really appreciate the help.
Thanks so much!
