We just got our 35 weeker home with us last Saturday after he spent a month in the NICU.

Now I'm coming down with something, sore throat and dry cough... What do I do? Any advice? Do I have to stay away from him? After being away from him so much for the past month, all I want to do is snuggle with him 24/7!

Are you breastfeeding? Your baby will get antibodies from you to help him fight off whatever you are coming down with if he is getting breastmilk.

I would do what you can to get better and to support your immune system. And wash your hands a lot!
