the concern with cats is actually DURING pregnancy, isn’t it? The toxoplasmosis bacteria that’s present in the litter can causes birth defects.
so as long as you’re not the one changing the litter, or it’s an outdoor cat, I hope you’d be fine.
I have no idea why people would tell you to get rid of the cat after the baby is born. weird.

I just came back to add to this: just today, my cat was sniffing my kid while she sat in her chair. I looked away for one second, and when I looked back, Lexi had a death grip on the cat’s ear. My cat (seriously guys, she’s really mean) just stood there and looked annoyed until I opened Lexi’s fingers, then she left.
No bites, no hissing, no swatting, just an “Oh PLEASE with the kid, Mom” face.

Someone please send this to my mother-in-law, who has told me every time i’ve seen her in the past five months that i’ll have to kick our kitty out of the bedroom. I’m more worried about her neurotic dogs jumping on me/the baby than I am about the cat!
