I was taught/told the first 2 to 3 months of a child's life. the baby should not be around a lot of people. Stay in the house. Because they have not immune system. Only immediate family around. Do parents still do this?

I was like that with my first child. I was a total germaphobe. I had alcohol hand sanitizer by the gallon. I made everyone wash extensively. If I could have erected a hazmat cleaning shower outside I would have! LOL! He didn't get sick until he was 18 months from a visit to toddler playtime at the library. When my Daughter was born, I was out within a few weeks. We went to the zoo, the aquarium etc. She got her first cold at 3 months from my Son who was attending Preschool at the time. Once you have an older sibling in school, you just can't keep the germs at bay. I still don't let her crawl on public floors or suck on the grocery cart handle! LOL GROSS!

Oh, BTW, I had my Daughter last year & after she was born in the Hospital, the Nurse recommended my DH & I get a Whooping Cough vaccination Just in case. Pertussis is very prevalent lately. The Dr. also recommended that all family & friends who will come in contact with the new baby get the shot too. I know a girl who just had a baby recently & they told her the same thing. My DH & I got it for free at the Hospital.
