Thankfully they didn't stay long, but when she was leaving, she said, "If you need anything, let me know! I would LOVE to come by and hold the baby for a few hours!" Um, why would I want anyone to do that?? Do the dishes or something; don't take my baby! She was a nice lady and well meaning and she was very kind to make us dinner, but I did not enjoy their visit. I am super sensitive right now. I cried for an hour after she left.
That would have really upset me! I learned my lesson with pass the baby with my last ds who ended up getting sick and hospitalized. I have been so careful with Charlotte. My mom or sister haven't even held her yet. Although my SIL took her and then let her daughter hold her. I almost had a panic attack trying to figure out how to politely get my baby back. I was trying to get DH to have them come at a later date but then I felt guilty. Turns out it will be my kids to make her sick. I think my 2 yr old has Pertussis and I can't get him to stop kissing the baby. I'm so torn if I should bring him in to get swabbed because if it's + the Department of Health gets involved and requires the entire household to be treated. I would really like to treat this naturally, I just sent Dh to get some homeopathic stuff that I read works really well. I don't want my entire family to be forced to be on abx and then have gut problems. But I don't want them to be terribly sick either. AHHHHH! And then i don't know what to do about the baby. My ped said he has put 2 newborns with it in the hospital for 4-6 weeks recently. But my sister who works for Children's hospital as a phone triage said they are ALWAYS getting calls about it and its just the media who is scaring everyone right now.
