The thing about little kids and colds and stuff is that the parents who sequester them and take extra precautions to maintain them sicky-poo free when they're tiny will eventually get their ass kicked when their kids get bigger and go to school and get totally sick all the time when it really counts. All kids get sick, but colds and even fevers are pretty par for the course. Build their resistance when they are young. The only thing I tend to avoid is other kids who have terrible coughs, not that I'm worried about my kids getting sick, per se, but because kids take weeks to get over a cough. Snot sucker is vital, btw, for all parents.

Anyway, aero, just be reasonable, wash hands, etc. Use common sense. Don't be afraid of sick people, but don't let them slobber all over the baby, either. And it's never too early to teach/adopt the so-called vampire cough.

haha well as I mentioned my fear of sick people is an ongoing kinda deal - when I worked in hospitals & had sicktime I didn't have any such fear but when "calling in sick" = losing a lot of money one's relationship to illness changes

If you ever have a month off, go on a handshaking/doorknob-licking spree.
