Now that it's cold and flu season, you may be more touchy about people getting all touchy with your baby. However, many people just cannot resist grabbing little cheeks and sweet smelling baby heads. What to do?
  • Have a policy and stick with it - if you're not crazy about people touching your baby, tell them that you have a clean hands policy. Say that it's nothing personal, but you just don't want your baby catching any of the colds going around.
  • Carry hand sanitizer and if people want to touch your babe, have them use it.
  • Lie - Say, "My baby has been sick, and I'd hate for you to catch it." A good, "You would not believe the vomit that came out of this child the other night" never hurts either. Babies are adorable, no doubt, but even the most enticed adult won't want to get sick.
What have you done that works?
