Has anyone seen these:
I just saw a siggy pic in a post on another board with this on the kids carseat. I looked at her tickers and siggy, her LO doesn't seem to be preemie or have immune issues or anything.
So what do you guys think?
It would almost make me want to touch baby MORE than before.
ETA: I do have self control and don't touch other people's children. LOL
noxie52:I think it is a bit overboard, but some people do not have the will not to touch a baby! It creeps me out!
This. However it does irk me when I am wearing DD on my back and random people come up to her and start touching her...especially when I can't see these people (contrary to what I thought, mom's DON'T have eyes in the back of their heads. At least I don't yet). It super-irks me when they touch her hands- since they are in her mouth every .5 seconds.
Next baby is getting one of those and a onesie that says if you didnt makme please dont touch me! I am still sick of strangers that come up to us and first thing they do is touch my baby. They have done this sense the first time we took Jay into public 1 month old! They think it is ok to grab his hand, foot or the toy that he puts in his mouth. It really is not ok to touch strangers babys! Rant over!
I wouldnt actually use this, but I really do wanna get the onesie!
I wouldn't use one because I don't think it would actually work. I actually had to grab a kids hands after asking him 5 or 6 times to stop touching the baby. I kept looking around for a parent to help and nobody looked concerned about him AT ALL. Anyways not my point.
I can see it slowing people down if the baby was a preemie, sick, or had an immune disorder. If it stops 1 person I guess it works.
Heifergal:I don't see the big deal. If she doesn't want people touching her kid that's her business. Why does the kid have to be sick for her to prevent strangers from touching it with their dirty hands?
It's just that moms of children with health issues need to be more careful, so I think this would be more necessary for those LOs.
AubBun:Why is there a paw print on it?
What it's really saying is dog germs are too big for baby
I'd use it. My twins weren't preemies but they were still born in RSV season and people freak out when they see twins. I've had to ask so many total strangers to please don't touch my children.
I think the paw print is saying "keep your grubby paws off the baby, weird old lady"
We used one similar when DD was born and it was still RSV season...
It was in the shape of a stop sign and said "please wash your hands before touching mine". A bit overboard, yeah, but it gives a condition under which you can touch the kid, just a reminder not to if you're germy?
Part of it also would depend on circumstances... there was a post on here a couple weeks ago where someone was saying that people in church kept pawing at her baby (and upsetting him/her) throughout the entire mass.
