Don't come knocking if you're coughing

Don't come knocking if you're coughing

We love to have family and friends come and stay with us, although I cannot believe how many people have arrived on our doorstep unwell. Firstly, this stresses me, worrying about Abigail, what will she catch and secondly, I cannot afford to get sick, especially when I'm feeding 6-8 feeds a day, cleaning the house and cooking dinner. I would never visit someone if I was, or even felt sick, especially if there's a newborn.


WWWT Team – When you have a baby it is important to speak up for yourself in ways that make your needs and wishes clear without offending others. Once people know how you feel they usually respect your wishes.
