we don't test babies unless they have symptoms.

this really wasn't a big risk.  consult with her pediatrician monday if you are concerned.

aren't skin to skin contact the only way to pass it on? if so what are the risks?.. it was a quick second and i washed her face with water right after. i wasnt sure if i had washed it on the area because i was panicking.
