So after reading an earlier post, I understand that mom passes antibodies. Does that only happen if mom gets sick? Or are they antibodies from previous exposure? Someone told me that because I've been a teacher, I'll pass on lots of antibodies. Is this so?
Secondly, how much do you keep yor babies away from sick people? With get together a for holidays approaching, the new mom in me wants to protect fiercely. And handwashing? At what age do you stop making a big deal with it? My son just turned 5 months and I've always been a handwasher since I'm a teacher. But my husband isn't. he's starting to remember to wash his hands as soon as he gets home. And since baby is teething, we have lots of hand to mouth.
