  • its very possible, watch out for the signs, feaver, not eating good, grouchy, not sleeping much, it your baby gets a fever, call the doc asap, better be safe then sorry. are you BF?

  • ok if you freal out with worry, are you going to change anything? nope, if you get the answer"hey yes that baby will be sick" is that helpful? nope. hon worry when you have to, not now. go ahead if you dont have a stock of tylenol and stuff, get that ready in case. no way to tell you wether or not baby will catch it tho, jst make sure to watch will know if she is sick, and its not as scarey as you think, have faith hon, you'll do fine. :o)

  • I think that for medical information you should have more details and call your doctor not come to a message board.
