Hey Moms,

I am new to this page and I hate to start out with a health question but I am going to anyway. I have a 4 year old boy who came down with a sudden onset of Pneumonia. It started out as a normal cold or flu and has turned into a nasty mess.

I also have a 10 week old infant that I fear will contract the illness as well. We are in a small apartment right now until our house is done being built so there is no option to keep them separate. I do wash my hand when going from one child to the next and my 4 year old has been good about keeping his distance.

I no longer breast feed due to some medication that I have to take for a Chronic Illness. I did go about 8 weeks though. Baby has the sniffles but no fever or cough. My 4 year old however has a fever, extreme cough with mucus, the whole nine yards.

Any tips you can give me to get thing one healthy and keep thing two out of it would be greatly appreciated!
