In brief: Exposure
Exposure to pathogen, inhaled, reach the lungs causing pneumonia.
Immune system is still developing, no longer with the antbody he loaned from you in the first 6 months. Make sure baby gets schedule immunization (the first 2 years are critical, bulk of vaccination are given during this time, specially the first year). Get the 2 influenza vaccination this fall (4 weeks apart).
