    Disinfect is the way to go I think Hun. And avoid sharing food/drink obviously. Wash your hands constantly! Bubs will be provided some immunity by your breastmilk as for you.... Cross you fingers! Hope you stay well xx

    Oh no!! Just keep washing hands/disinfecting everything.. Don't share cutlery etc.. Spray Glen20

    You can get masks too that they can wear to stop it spreading.

    Best of luck, gastro is horrible!

    I had an extreme case of gastro on Christmas eve....I was so scared of DD catching it as if she did it would have to be a hospital visit for her.

    As I had to still BF all I did was make sure I was in clean clothes, washed and use that hand sanistiser whenever I handled her.

    I had minimal contact with her and DP and the kids.

    That was all I could do. Bascially if they are going to get it they will unfortunatley.

    Just make sure you isolate the sick ones as best you can. Dont let the baby or other kids near the sickies....and just keep cleaning everything they come into contact with, especially the toilet (if its vomit and diarrhea)....just disinfect what you can.

    Dont forget the hydralytes, the icy poles are the best.

    Its sucks so bad....I hope it doesnt spread further!
