Hello there my daughter has been diagnosed with mumps i've had an inoculation as a child 30 odd years ago but I was planning to fix a printer problem for a friend tomorrow and will be in the same room as the baby
is this putting baby at risk ? If at all possible that I could be carrying it from home to baby
many thanks for any advice you could offer me

I don't think you can spread your daughter's illness to another baby just by being in the same room with the baby. If your concerned about it though you can ask the mother of the infant if it would be possible to keep the baby in another room during the time that you are there.
