Hi,

It could be because of poor hand hygiene while handling the baby which is the most common cause for such a scenario in this age group.

The only other possibility is a primary immunodeficiency like severe combined immunodeficiency. I suggest you discuss all this with her pediatrician.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
