PLEASE Don't Touch the Baby...

I mentioned in my previous post that our little one is under quarantine for 2 months according to her Pediatrician. Her Pediatrician said that she just want to protect the baby coz there are people out there who doesn't think or use their head that babies immune system takes 2 months/time to build up. When we went to the Hospital's Laboratory to check our little one's bilirubin, hubby was guarding her and keeps her away from the people. So hubby stayed outside the Laboratory's waiting room where there are only few passers by while I stayed inside the waiting room so I know when it's our turn. Then I noticed that there were 2 older women who stopped by and looked at Claira. Claira was in the car seat sound asleep and hubby was holding the car seat's handle. One older woman took her time to look at the baby and I noticed that she almost want to touch her. Hubby was talking to the older woman but I didn't know what he said. So I asked hubby after of what happened and he said that he told the older woman "Please don't touch the baby. She's under quarantine". The older woman replied that she won't touch the baby, she just want to look. Every time we bring Claira outside, people keep on saying how cute and adorable she is. We even heard the woman that took Claira's picture at the Hospital that the nurses at the Hospital where I gave birth were talking about Claira. Then yesterday at the Pediatrician's office, another nurse said that "they" (the nurses) were talking about Claira. Don't know what they talked about but I didn't bother to ask. Later on, hubby and I decided to visit the model house that we like. The female Real Estate Agent was talking to a guy but when she saw us coming in, she followed us at the kitchen and looked at the baby. Hubby said that the baby is under quarantine but that didn't stop the female Real Estate Agent to almost touch Claira. She's so close to Claira's face which we thought she's going to really touch Claira. Then she touch the blanket that we covered on Claira's body and hubby said not to touch the baby. The Real Estate Agent said that she just want to look. She looked at Claira's left arm and said how cute Claira is. After what happened yesterday, hubby and I decided not to bring Claira outside anymore. Now we understand why Claira's Pediatrician said that Claira is under quarantine for 2 months. We never thought that there are people who doesn't really care or doesn't mind if the baby will get sick if they touch the baby. Though not all individuals are the same coz the male Real Estate Agent that hubby and I talked to most of the time keep his distance away from the baby. He said that Claira is a doll but he never tried to get closer to Claira. The Pediatrician is right that it's not worth the risk. So now Claira will stay in the house most of the time and will be out in the house for her Pediatrician's appointment. Hubby said that people were saying that he's fortunate to have Claira. I asked hubby of who said that and he said that nobody said the exact words but that's what people meant. ^_^


Here she is sleeping while hubby and I were talking to the Real Estate Agent.

I guess so. I think those who have kids or grown up kids appreciate how cute the newborn babies are that's why they can't control themselves even if you tell them that the baby is under quarantine. It really scares me and hubby coz we don't know if those strangers have a contagious disease. At least in the Philippines, strangers don't touch other people's babies especially if they don't know the parents. Mora tawn mi duha sa akong bana ug ga patrol ug bantay sa bata kung manggawas mi aron walay matintal ug duol pero di jud kasabot bisan sultian pa. Makasapot mga tawo diri, gahi ug ulo. Moduol man gihapon nga hapit na mo kiss sa nawng. Grrrrr

Unfortunately, a lot of people don't know any better. Cute kasi talaga yung little angel nyo eh.

I guess your decision not to take her outside much is the best you can do to avoid such incidents....

Hay kakainggit....
