I was leaning on the side of caution, I personally don't want to expose my son to illness for no reason but wasn't sure if I'm overly cautious.
Might see what mum is doing on Sunday for a few hours. Might get around it that way and just avoid contact with the kids at the christening so I don't pick it up.

I wouldn't go. Christening a are lovely but HFM is extremely dangerous. There's no way I would 'risk' it.

Well just for an interesting update. I didn't not take DS as I felt it was too much of a risk but as it turns out another little boy who attended, came down with HFM. I feel justified in my actions now even though it seems to have cost us some friendships. I just feel sorry for the other boy.

Have you tried talking to them and saying how happy you are for their family/ give a little christening present to the daughter and just be honest. Say you're so sorry that you didn't bring ds to the christening, but you were concerned for good reason that he might be exposed to a potentially dangerous illness. You would have loved to have your whole family there to support them but unfortunately it didn't work like that. Hopefully your friendship can transcend this horrible situation but you won't risk DS's health for anything.

Could something else be going on? It seems like such an extreme reaction.
