What you can do, is to maintain the regular infant welfare visits, give him or her the necessary vaccinations (one of the most important things you can do for your child), make sure your baby eats well, regarding both the amount and type of foods, and generally keep a good hygiene: make sure to wash hands after you go to the toilet and before you handle your baby, don't expose him or her to other sick infants etc.
However, all this is just a general advice - if you have specific question you may want to consult your doctor (e.g. a pediatrician).
