What I mean is, if you as the mother get sick first, then your body builds up antibodies and passes those antibodies on to your baby. But if HE gets sick and you don't, then you don't have the antibodies to pass on to him.
    My understanding is that the second baby is exposed to something an then nurses, it's like an open system. When they nurse, they are giving it to you and your antibodies start working to give right back to them.
