    How contagious is whooping cough? I'm having baby no 2 in 7 weeks and while I'd like to lay low until our first round of vaccinations, dd has to be dropped off at daycare, ballet lessons, sports etc.. Staying home for the first 6 weeks just isn't an option. I took dd out and about as soon as I recovered from my c/s but at the time I guess i was a bit naive about sickness, whooping cough etc. I feel a bit more paranoid about things this time around (sometimes ignorance really is bliss) would investing in some kind of baby carrier be worth it to avoid germs and get out of having to let people hold the baby? I didn't bother with a carrier last time. I've heard the manduca is good?

    I take baby number 2 everywhere with me and its Melbourne in the middle of winter.
    that jncludes a snotty childcare centre twice a day ;-)

    any stretchy wrap would be perfect to keep Bub warm and away from strangers cuddles.

    I don't think it's anybody else's place to judge whether you're being "overprotective" about your baby. It's your baby so you have to be comfortable with your decisions. Just because some people might be ok going to big gatherings early on doesn't mean you have to be ok with it or that you're too overprotective because you're not comfortable with it. You be as protective as you want to be.

    Personally, I HAD to take bubs out early on because he needed Physio so by 10 days I was taking him to the children's hospital to see the Physio - I was freaking out because hospital germs etc. He was fine luckily and never got sick, but a few short months later baby Riley died. I just keep thinking that could have been our son (we live in Perth).

    I don't think there's anything wrong with lying low until the first round of immunisations. Especially if you're having a c-section.

    You should be getting the WC booster now so that your baby will get some immunity from that. Even if you had it recently for no1 you can have it again safely. It's what they recommend now - booster in 3rd trimester of every pregnancy.

    I just saw my ob yesterday and asked about the wc booster and he said it's meant to last 5 years so I didn't need one. I had it about 3.5 years ago when pregnant with dd. So now I'm confused..

    Current recommendation is to get it again in the 3rd trimester to give Bub some sort of protection. If you Google there's info on it. It's highly contagious.

    I was the opposite and didn't want to be stuck in the house with a crying baby. I felt like I should share her screaming lol.

    This. .google the government's current ViP (vaccination in pregnancy) program. Vaccination (against WC and flu) is recommended in the 3rd trimester preferably in the 28-33rd weeks, regardless of when previous vac was. This boosts maternal antibodies which are passed pre-natally and via breastfeeding to bub, increasing protection in the highest risk period before first vax..

    I've just made an appt at my local clinic to get the booster. I just feel a bit weird going against my obs advice since I know he's one of the best in my area. Maybe he was thinking of my protection lasting 5 years and not considering the baby?
