My lovely girl is 6 days old today and her 2yo brother has a bad cold; cough, sneezes but no temp. I'm just not sure what to do; am I ok to keep them in the house together. He's already sneezed on her a few days ago so no doubt she's already been exposed to the virus but she's not showing any symptoms yet. Should I be worried?

Unfortunately you are just going to have to wait it out.

We had same at six weeks. Unfortunately bubs is going to be exposed to everything the big one brings home. I’m our case I sincerely hope that means I won’t be off every other week when this one heads to nursery and I go back!
