Has this flu season had an effect on you...

Posted by   + Show Post

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?

We haven't been effected at all. I haven't really taken any extra precautions. I have a cover for high chairs/shopping carts that I use anyway and always wash my hands thoroughly. I've had the flu once my whole life (when I was about 8) and rarely get sick now.

Haven't done anything to stifle it like what you suggested. We're dealing with it right now, but it's nothing we can't handle. There isn't any puking, just fevers, coughs, and lack of sleep.  But that last one comes with having kids anyway. lol.

We havent gotten sick. (knock on wood) We all got the flu shot, but my 10 month old only got 1 half because everyone ran out the next time she was supposed to get the other half

No. We also weren't vaxed. But my mom was and got the flu a month later. We just practice good hygiene like normal. I don't put baby in a cart. He doesn't like it but i do wipe the handle. When we need to go out we go out. There's no reason to be afraid of the world

Thankfully no. Although it's not over yet, we are especially going to be careful now that we have a newborn in our house.

We don't go out much, but thats normal for winter. I do wipe the carts and sanitize as soon as we get in the car. We pass on flu shots too.

Nope, not worried about getting the flu.
We're healthy people :-)

My 20 month old has it now. He's been sick for 3 days. I'm crossing my fingers none of the rest of us get it.
