I didn't get te flu shot while pregnant. My daughter is 3 weeks old and I am nervous about everything I am hearing about the flu being out there. What are you all doing for your babies to keep them safe?
I got the shot the day he was born. We try not to bring him out lately unless it's necessary. Lots of hand sanitizer and Lysol happening in our household.
Edited for spelling error.
AMY081410:I got the flu shot when I was pregnant and unfortunately both DD2 and I still got the flu a few weeks ago. nbsp;Luckily, because I was breastfeeding, DD2 did not get very sick, just a bit on congestion. nbsp;I'm sooooooo thankful.
mabenner1:I got the flu shot while pregnant to protect DS until he was old enough to get the flu shot himself. All you can do is keep her home and away from sick people. And wash your hands frequently.
All of this I got the shot while pregnant. I never hesitated. We are also limiting his and our contact with others. We use hand sanitizer/wash our hands when we get home, before we get in the car from the store, etc.
We don't leave the house too much. And when we do my LO doesn't leave his car seat unless he needs to be feed.
I make sure when my oldest gets home from DC I wash his hands & change his clothes & don't let him touch his brothers face.
