A Mother’s Warning. Ask Those Who Are Admiring Your Newborn Not To Kiss The Child For The Child’s Sake. HSV-1 virus. It’s the Herpes Simplex Virus most commonly known as the cold sore virus or the “kiss of death” for infants. For adults it’s not a big deal. But for infants with little to no immune system, it’s fatal. When someone who has the virus in their system and kisses an infant it can spread rapidly. You can have the virus and not even know you have it. You don’t have to have an active cold sore to pass it on. You shed the virus in your saliva and when it gets on the baby it goes through the body so fast. It attacks the brain first. It shows up as a type of meningitis. It’s fluid based around the vertebrae and goes straight the the brain. It then spreads to all their organs. It happens so fast that you don’t even know the baby is sick.
Everyone needs to know about this virus and what it does to children and their families! PEOPLE!!!! STOP KISSING BABIES THAT ARE NOT YOURS!!!!! WAS YOUR HANDS WHEN YOU ARE AROUND NEWBORNS!!!!!
Get the word out. More people, especially families with newborns, need to know about this sickness. This is a serious and dangerous illness. Do your part, stop kissing babies and start washing your hands. These babies don’t deserve it.
The following was taken from a Facebook post of a mother who just lost her newborn daughter to this virus: I as a mother and wife didn’t deserve it. My husband and children don’t deserve it. And now we will live a whole life time of “what if’s”. I will never see her go to kindergarten, graduate high school or college, my husband will never walk her down the isle on her wedding day, I will never see her be a better mother than me. It’s not fair!! We should have never had to go through this. I love you Emerson Faye. I will carry on your name and your love till eternity. I will never forget you. I will never stop loving you. Fly high beautiful baby.
Keep the children as safe as possible.
