FAMILY MATTERS: GERMS


One of the things that always grossed me out about my toddlers was how they had to put their mouths on EVERYTHING, from restaurant tables to grocery shopping carts. Now, this is totally developmentally appropriate and a good sensory experience for your child. However, do you really want them licking door handles in the supermarket? Not me. Although, I will admit I had a kid who licked the diaper pail. You can’t keep their mouths off of everything, but I discovered one of my FAVORITE products for my toddlers was shopping cart seat covers. Made of fabric (so you can toss them in the “sanitize” cycle on your washing machine) shopping cart covers were a lifesaver when the boys wanted to taste EVERYTHING. Found everywhere from your local department store to online vendors, these are an inexpensive way to help combat germs in your toddler’s life.

TIP 13-36 months: Is it OK for your baby or toddler to watch TV? Experts disagree about this matter. If they are getting screen time, most experts DO agree to limit it to 10 minutes or less per day.
