    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.

    Fingers crossed that the little boy is fine. Sad to hear that someone else's little fellow is now unwell.

    You don't have to justify your parenting choices to anyone. You're Mum. You make the rules when it comes to your children.

    Apparently he is on the mend and ok, luckily.

    Our friendships with the parents of the little girl being christened? That's the thing that is sadly very unwell.

    I'm sorry to hear that. It would be very frustrating but you've obviously done the right thing for your family.

    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.

    We've been calling them consistently and today I gave up and put the present in their mailbox. It's up to them now. Also, we just told them that DS was sick and we'd been up all night, that's why we weren't attending. Apparently that's not good enough!!

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