Two nurslings, one is sick...

Okay, I have a potentially stupid question. I am nursing my boys, ages 22 months and 3 months. I only nurse my toddler about 2-3 times per day, usually, but he is sick so I'm nursing him on demand since he is not eating/drinking otherwise. He has diarrhea and fever.

I know nipples are self-cleansing and there's no reason to use soap, etc., but should I take any special precautions after nursing him before I let my 3 month old nurse on the same side? For today I've let my toddler nurse on one side and the baby on the other, but I was just wondering....
