Baby is 12 days old today and is anybody still really anxious about people visiting? I have a small family but my partners family is hugeee and full of young kids and it absolutely sends my anxiety through the roof.

It’s completely understandable, when they’re newborn they are susceptible to so many illnesses. Visitors should be respectful in terms of length of stay and not passing baby around. I always ask visitors who want to hold the baby to sanitise their hands first.

It's perfectly reasonable to say no to young kids coming round for the foreseeable!

I was anxious until after 2 and a half weeks but that’s because we haven’t got hold of our little one sleeping and I was feeling overwhelmed having people visiting!

We’ve had visitors but I’ve not had young children over yet! My daughters 3 and I just about cope with her and the newborn, I’m not ready for lots of screaming kids in the house just yet 🤣 all in good time!
