Do newborns have a greater immunity than, say, a 6 month old?

Asked by Dutchess_III (43352points) November 14th, 2013

You know how we always put a clean blanket down on the floor for the little babies. Well, when they start crawling it’s pretty much throw up your hands and all bets are off! There they go, under furniture, picking stuff up and sticking in their mouths, off through the grass, whatever.

Is a newborn any more likely to pick up “germs” from a floor than a 6 month old baby?

Having said that, even if my rugs were carefully vacuumed I’d still put down a blanket for a newborn!
