Parents can have different levels of resistance. When the resistance is low, a vaccine may also cause a viral infection. Therefore, the usual preventive measures are still very important.
2, keep clean: for the baby (especially the baby 6 months ago) to make complementary food utensils (cabbage, cutlery, filter gauze or slippery net, juicer, various containers, etc.) to dry, use Wash and disinfect before. In addition, the mother should wash her hands after changing the diaper, before feeding, before breastfeeding, and before feeding the baby.
