There’s just something about snuggling a newborn baby dressed in a fleece outfit when it’s cold outside.
With nasty bugs going around, and everyone falling prey to them, it’s good to give some reminders on protocols for visiting new moms.
- Fever free for at least 24 hours
- No vomiting or diarrhea for 48 hours
- No wet coughs
- No kisses on the face or hands
As much as we love those baby snuggles, we need to remember how serious even minor bugs can be for newborns. Limiting, as much as possible, exposure from well-meaning friends is the nice thing to do.
What are your rules as moms or dads of newborns? We’d love to hear!
