Follow the instructions

Here are some tips on how to keep your baby healthy and how to keep those admirers - or at least their germs off your kid.
1. Make hand washing a rule.
2. Redirect. If you can't stop the hordes of friends and relatives from touching your baby, you can exert some control over what they touch. "Parents should ask people to touch or kiss the baby's feet instead of the hands or face."
3 .Carry hand sanitizer
4. Follow the vaccination schedule. one of the most important ways of protecting your kids from other people's illnesses is to make sure they're getting all their vaccines.
5. Avoid exposure.
