Since it's the holidays AND cold and flu season do you regulate who touches your kids during this time of year? OR do you have instant hand sanitizer around and have people use that before touching?
I have 2 kids under 2 years old. The doctor recommended not to let a lot of people touch either child even though one is 17 months but the other is almost 9 weeks. I just got a flu shot myself and my 17 month old just got her 2nd dose today and the doctor told me today.
How should I handle this? Just say no touching because the doctor says so or only let a few people touch and take extra precautions? If I go with the no touching at all I'd have to told both kids all the time cause hubby's family will take the kids right from you.
I don't want either of my kids getting sick though. My niece was just admitted to the hospital due to sickness and she's 4 years old.
What to do?

LMBO! Gee Wiz how 0LD is your doctor??!! Im what some would consider middle age and I think that sounds like someones crazed old auntie talking.
Kids get sick... end of story. You can not keep them in a bubble. Unless your particular child has a serious underlying issue I think it is simply nutz to alter your life every time someone sneezes.
