  • I would... but keep little fingers off the baby. Maybe even carry the baby in a sling or carrier so it's harder to get to the baby. Germy season is coming to an end so I think you would be pretty safe.

  • I would. But that's just me. Those babies in most cases have better immune systems than we do being that little. Just don't let people be touchy if your worried.

  • That is a hard decision because your 5 year old will never be in kinder again but your putting your baby in harm of viruses. They catch almost anything and with the stuff going around now I wouldn't do it. See if a neighbor or a parent from your kids school can?

  • yeah i would keep him in his carrier and not let ne one touch him. he was born 2 days before my daughter turned 5 and i had to cancel her bday party and have been feeling really guilty so i will feel even worse if i miss this

  • I'm leaning towards no jsut becuase so young, but then again my daughter went to outpatient at the hosp for beli tests at 4 and 5 days old, so that probably has more germs than the graduation! Should be fine as long as baby isn't being passed around, ya know. My only concern is the influx of germs at such a young age. At a month I wouldn't care as much.

  • That is somthing you don't want to miss! I would say go ahead just have your little one in a wrap or covered in a stroller. If someone wants to touch I always say to touch feet only, that way you can wipe them and baby is less likely to put them in mouth.
