Antibodies and Boobies

Breastfeeding and immunity filter: When I (the breastfeeding mom) am exposed to a bug that I have previously developed antibodies to, does baby get enough antibodies to prevent contracting the bug? Does he make antibodies too, or just float by on mine? When he encounters the same bug later in life will he have immunity to it? Does baby get my antibodies to bugs we're not encountering? Is he, for instance, immune to the flu from 2002 that I got? They say that BF babies get sick less often and when they get sick it's not as bad. Immunity-wise, how can a baby get a bug not as bad? Does that just mean the bug doesn't get to run the course, ie. cut off midway?

drop-side or standard fixed-side crib

Should we opt for the drop-side or standard fixed-side crib? My man's 6'2 and I'm 5'9, so I'm thinking the drop-side may be nice for putting down the (soon-to-be) baby when he gets heavier (especially if I'm pregnant again by then)! [more inside]
