How to protect your little ones from getting sick!

The pandemic, the flu and RSV, all those germs are out there right now.

Helpful tips:

~Place a cover over the carrier, make sure you can still see your baby.

~Have sanitizer on your carrier and bulb syringe in the carrier.

~Do not let anyone around your baby that has any kind of symptoms, such as; runny nose, cough, headache, fever or if they have been exposed to anyone that is sick.

~Keep your family circle small of who can visit your baby.

~No kissing on your baby's face or hands except parents.

~Sanitize once you are home and don't forget to wipe down the door handles.

~Sanitize before you touch your baby if you are out.

~Breastmilk is full of your immunity which protects your baby, so keep feeding/pumping. For the mums that do not have a lot of milk, continue to breastfeed/pump and then supplement after, your immunity can not be replaced.

~If you have other children at school or daycare, change their clothes and wash/sanitize their hands before they touch the baby.

~To the best of your ability, be mindful of what you touch. Think of germs as glitter on your hands.

~Wash your hands, sanitize and keep newborns home as much as you can.
