Caution Is The Key: See what happened to this Baby After Receiving Kisses From Family Members

Do you let strangers have mouth to mouth contact with your baby? A mum has learnt the hard way after her baby contracted herpes by kissing a family member .Claire Henderson, a mother from Doncaster,
England posted pictures of her newborn to Facebook. She captioned the pictures with a message to moms as to why it’s ...
important to not let anyone, including friends and family kiss your baby:
“Please share this with every new mum
and pregnant woman you know… COLD
Before 3 months old a baby cannot fight
the herpes virus. If a baby contracts this it
can cause liver and brain damage and lead
to death.
I know this sounds like I am
scaremongering but if my friend had not
told me about this my baby girl could have
been very seriously ill. I noticed the signs
early and got her to A&E, we have now
been in hospital on a drip for 3 days and
have got another 2 to go. She was VERY
lucky, all her tests came back clear. The
moral of the story is DO NOT let anyone
kiss your newborns mouth, even if they
don’t look like they have a cold sore- 85%
of the population carry the virus. And if
someone had a cold sore ask them to stay
away until it has gone. Everyone who I
have spoken to had not heard of this
before and so I felt it was important to
share Brooke’s story and raise awareness
to stop anyone else going through what we have this week.”
Please, let's not throw caution to the wind. Health is wealth you know!!!
