How long is influenza contagious?

Hi, I have a 10 months old baby. Her father came home two days ago with flu symptoms . Since then, the baby didn t show any symptoms (me neither), even though we ve been in contact with him. For how long should we maintain quarantine? Is it still possible to get infected now? (I m thinking that if we didn t get it, maybe we developped antibodies) The baby is breastfed.Thank you.
