In brief: Immunize

Immunize the baby if she is six months of age or older as soon as the current year's vaccine is available.
It is also important to immunize anyone in the household against flu as that will further reduce the baby's exposure.

In brief: Wash hands

First of all - be sure that your child (as long as he is 6 months of age or older), as well as the rest of the family is vaccinated against influenza yearly.
Then, wash hands, wash hands, wash hands. You can wash with soap and water or use a hand cleanser. Other ways to avoid infection include not sharing foods or drinks.
