after how many days of antibiotics are you no longer contagious?

Hi All,

We gave birth of two one month ago and got a new night nanny suggested by a friend.
She said was sick with throat infection and doctor gave antibiotics and she is already taking it for 5 days. She said she is 100% risk free for the babies. We got stressed about that.
After how many days of antibiotics are you no longer contagious? And if is/was a flu/cold?
We are afraid for the babies.
Thank you
Mark

It depends on what she had.  You could ask to talk to her doctor about it.

Yes, I think you should ask the doctor.  I feel like they are good to go if they have just something treated with antibiotic----  two days into it.  But if it is secondary to a virus, then longer is better.  Preschools usually say that they want kids to be done with their antibiotics but that is not realistic for 'real' school (kindergarten on).  good luck
