    Yes, definitely – not because the babies will become deathly ill or anything, but because the other moms will probably look at you like you’re Satan himself. I once went out to lunch with a couple of other moms while I was at the tail end of a cold and even though I warned everyone and used tons of hand sanitizer, everyone and their babies wound up getting sick and I felt terrible. The other moms were nice about it, but I think there was a lot of exasperation under the politeness. Totally learned my lesson.

    Yes, skip! Dear Daughter is 2, and it’s still such a hassle when she gets a cold because she hates having her nose wiped and doesn’t know how to blow her own nose. It’s really hard for her to sleep, and she turns into a pretty cranky kid! You don’t want to be the one to bring that into the group on your first day.
