Default Can Pixel Catch A Cold Or Virus From Me?

Is that even possible? Is it OK to hold her still as long as I wash my hands and keep her away from my face? I've only held her 2 times during the last 4 days. *shock* She loves that because usually she wakes up in my hands about 6 times a day. and the past 4 days she's been sleeping whenever my Dad isn't holding her. Any help would be appreciated!

Probably not but it is always best to take precautions. I am even more cautious when I have a fever combined with cold/flu symptoms.

This is a good question, and I've wondered about it too.
