Kisses for new babies

Nichole • March 2020 baby 👶🏼 🎀

So I’ve seen and read many posts regarding visitors kissing babies and causing live altering illness, permanent physical ailments, blindness, and even death.

I have 2 questions:

First- is as the parents of the baby, should they even be cautious to not kiss the baby

Second-how long or how old should the baby be before its in the clear for kisses of extended family members?

Thank you.
