Do you worry about your little one touching things that are germy, for example toys at the local shopping centre that look like they have never been cleaned?

  • Not once my kids were walking – I figured there was no way to stop them touching things. I just made sure there was also a lot of hand washing.

  • Yes I do. Hand rails, toilet doors, trolleys. Ew! I know they need germ exposure for their immune system, but it’s gross

  • Kids need exposure to germs… We all survived. Just use common sense and relax….

  • Yiu can’t be overly ocd about germs – this is why so many children have allergies and low immune systems.

  • Um, yes I am a germ-a-phobe and will make sure my kids wash their hands before they eat.

  • I worried about germs when my daughter was a baby because a baby’s immune system is still building itself up. As she grew older I worried a little less.

  • yeah take hand sanitizer and wipes for that lol

  • Yes I do but sometimes you just have to let them and then clean their hands afterwards with either wipes or hand sanitiser.

  • Yes!! I know it’s meant to be good for them to be exposed to dirt and germs but I’m a germaphobe lol!

  • I dread them coming into contact with a germy, snotty little cold sufferer. Ew it’s so gross when another kids approaches mine and they’re all covered in boogie
