I would say "Maybe since you're exhibiting these symptoms, you should limit your contact with Baby for a day or two" and see how he responds to the idea. At least that's how I deal with my husband. That way you're bringing the idea up but not telling him what has to happen. If he fights you over it, you can keep pushing your argument. I would DEFINITELY be nervous to have him too close to the baby, because the last thing you need is a sick baby. Good luck!
Well baby is getting breast milk so I wouldn't freak out. Make sure he's washing his hands and using sanitizer and I wouldn't let him kiss all over her but he doesnt need to be quarantined. Just watch baby for symptoms and a fever.
Make sure he is washing his hands a lot. I am not sure if he does feedings or diaper changes, but if so maybe have him take a couple days off from those tasks? I hope that he starts to feel better soon and that you and baby stay healthy.
If he's going to be in the same house, there's going to be germs floating around. I'd just say not to kiss or get in the baby's face. Wash his hands whenever touching baby. I have stressed so much in the past about keeping babies from getting sick and it doesn't seem to make a difference when it's cold stuff. I'm sure she'll be fine since you're bfing.
