My baby is 6 days old and absolutely perfect in every way I had hoped she would be! Unfortunately, my 8 year old daughter is very sick with what they are assuming is H1N1 (all the classic symptoms) and I am terrified the baby will catch it as well. I'm not sure what the incubation period is, but when we got home from the hospital, my 8 year old was so into her, wanting to hold her and be near her. Yikes! I guess obsessing over this is not helping me, but I am so scared. I am glad we have been extra careful with hand washing, but still, it's hard not to worry. Does anybody have any experience (or know somebody who did) with babies and H1N1? My understanding from the dr is there is very little they can do to help little babies other than tylenol and fluids.
