The institutionalized use of hand sanitizer is going to make us weak as a species. We are not giving our offspring the opportunity to develop strong and robust immune systems. Moreover, I don't want to put that chemical crap on my kid.
I think the same thing can be said about anti-bacterial hand soap. I only use hand sanitizer when I visit a hospital or clinic. Otherwise I don't think to use it. I wash my hands when cooking, after using the restroom, or changing a diaper.
Other than that I don't give much thought to germs.
Agree! I have a hand sanitizer in the diaper bag in case I need to change LO somewhere I don't have an oportunity to wash my hands. I don't ever have LO use it. If I pick up an antibacterial soap it's not because of that fact, but because it smells good lol
