Since we've had this bad flu season, have you taken precautions such as limiting baby's outside travels or doing things like wiping down shopping carts with sanitizing cloths & using hand sanitizer?

No, knock on wood! I've been having my son wash his hands right away, coming home from school. I sanitize my work station at work and always wiping down carts.

I don't take my son out unless it's to one if his doctor appointments. My son,.my husband and I have all avoided getting sick! What about your household?

We haven't so far. We are pretty lucky to not get sick very often, which with three kids is school and/or preschool is a miracle. I try to disinfect the house often though, wipe down hand rails, door knock, light switches, remotes, etc. with disinfecting wipes.

As of yet the flu hasn't affected us. I do worry though with all the germs that it's inevitable though. I do carry hand sanitizer and sanitizing clothes when we go shopping. Sad but true we have to take these precautions to keep ourselves and our children safe today.

At 6 wks old my baby girl got a upper respiratory infection but since she gets mommys milk she healed up in days. no flu tho.. mommy keeps her immune system strong. we sanitize our house everyday and when she goes out keep her covered up in her carseat.

We ALWAYS try to have good handwashing and such.  I really thought our daughter was going to come out of this season well for she's not been sick yet.  However.....now she has not only the flu but a sinus and upper respiratory infection!  UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!  Our son has already had croup.  But we don't restrict our errands unless its very cold then one of us will go out while the other stays at home with the kids.
