First of all, it is very rare that someone will get aids or hiv from a needle that was sitting out for a long time. Especially since you have been tested multiple times and it came back negative, I wouldn’t worry about it at all. If you want as a precaution, to have the baby tested. Babies are more prone to diseases since they are young and their immune system isn’t fully developed, so signs should show early if the baby was infected, so send the child to the Doctor as a just in case measure. Hope I helped, and if you have any questions please contact me!
