Dr. Le-Bucklin’s Answer:
For large family gatherings, I recommend having hand sanitizer all around the home and having everyone use it upon entry to the home and before holding babies. Avoid having visitors who have symptoms of an infection, including fever, runny nose, cough, sore throat, vomiting, or diarrhea. Timely vaccination of premature babies is also important in reducing their risk of serious infections.
Note: I was recently interviewed by Lani, the mother of triplets and co-founder of the Multiples and More Blog Network. This question was from our interview.
