Am I Being Too Strict

I think requesting people sanitize is a little different than secluding baby from all germs. I think the not changing baby on the bed in case someone else sat there is a little over the top. I know Mason gets exposed to all kinds of germs each day...he crawls on the floor and plays with toys in the floor and these toys go in his mouth. But I also know that he's not likely to get the flu or a stomach virus from these germs. I ask people to sanitize their hands to limit the amount of those types of germs that Mason is exposed to. Plus, I don't know other people's bathroom habits either....I know I wouldn't want to shake hands with someone that had been to the bathroom and not washed their hands and then end up with my hands in my mouth....poor Mason doesn't know any better so I ask people to sanitize for him.

there was a news story here a little while ago that raised a red flag on the amount of alcohol in the handsanitizing lotions, especially the quick drying ones----I'm sure a nice dose of topical alcohol is not the greatest for your kids. My own personal philosophy is pretty relaxed. I think people tend to overreact.

Just so no one gets nervous about it (as I first did when I see the headline on the news), the news story about hand sanitizer was basically just saying that kids shouldn't ingest the stuff. DUH!! Thanks a lot, newsbroadcasters, LOL.

That actually sounds like a great idea to me!
