Hand, foot and mouth - am I contagious if my son has it?

My son had this 2 weeks ago - I think he stopped having it about 6 days ago (that is when he went back to nursery). However I am going to visit new baby tomorrow and the last thing I want to do is inadvertently give it to the baby. Does anyone know if there is any risk at all? Thanks

It is a virus, it is contagious, and has an incubation period of 3-7 days usually. So I'd say it is a risk.
