There was a previous post about a sip and see. The poster/responders suggested wearing the baby to limit holding - to avoid unwanted touching and germ sharing. I love this idea. However, I don't know how to win this argument - I don't know how wearing the baby will keep people from reaching over and taking my baby. DD is due in a few short weeks and people that I work with and family have stated that they CANNOT WAIT!!! to hold the baby. When DS was born, I was TOLD to hand him over. I became the kid with a kid instead of the mother with a newborn son. How can I avoid being bombarded by everyone and their brother that wants to hold the new baby? Admittedly, I"m more concerned with colds and RSV than her vaccines but the previous poster made a very good point as well.
