this may sound really dumb, but how long are kiddos contagious for with just cough/snotty noses?? my 7yo (who is never sick) slept all day last monday (one week ago) and complained his head hurt, etc. anyway, my sister had a new baby the same week and i am hoping to travel this week down to see her with my oldest son. so he would have been snot nose free for at least a week. is it safe to take him with me to meet the new baby (my sister needs nursing help/support so that's the reason for going down this week).

he should be over it by then but make sure he washes his hands and doesnt kiss her on the face.  If it is her first child, she may prefer he not be in direct contact with the baby since they do have a weakened immune system and are vulnerable.
