In brief: Yes
Warts are caused by a virus and anyone can catch them if they come in direct contact with the wart.

In brief: No
The virus causing the warts on your toes remains in that location.
I supose you could pass the virus if you spent time messing with the warts with your fingers & then touched baby with contaminated fingers. Leaving them alone & deciding to touch baby only after washing your hands can avoid a bunch of different germs including this one.
