Sorry for another swine/flu needle question
I normally would not get the flu shot, or give it to 8month DD.
However, we will be traveling to America for 3 weeks in May. We are going to San Fransisco, Denver, Chicago and Milwaukee.
We will be staying with family for part of the time. They have a 2 1/2 year old and a 7 month old - who are both in full time day care.
My concerns are:
- The US has different germs to Australia - so I won't really be passing any immunity on to DD through BF
- We are staying with 2 babies - so increased risk of catching something
My MCHN suggested that we get the flu vaccine - which is combined with the swine flu vac here in WA.
Given this scenario - would you give the vaccination to DD? Or should I get the vaccination and the antibodies be transferred to DD through breast milk?
