It's basic principle. Do not touch other people's babies! I don't understand why the concept is soooo hard. Maybe it's me. I tend to get all the weirdos tell me their life story when I'm out. Maybe I have a considerate look, or maybe I look like I care. I can assure you, I do not care and I am probably not listening. Christian didn't believe me. He always wondered what took me so long to run the simplest of errands.....until our recent JCPenney trip. A lady admires our children, I say "thanks" but keep walking. She says she is from out of town and asks if the weather is always this hot. I say "yes, it is", while still walking through the store. She continues to follow. She tells me all about her health, how her husband just died (I know sad, huh?) and talks about her children and her children's children and oh how I was stuck pretending to listen for 15 minutes. Listen. I'm not hateful. I just have two kids and my time away from the house and my pajamas is limited. Anyways, I hate to be rude to someone's face and I always feel awkward about telling someone to NOT touch my children. I don't know why, maybe because I don't seem to have enough time to stop someone before they do it? Then after the fact its null?
Well, my old school buddy has a GREAT idea. After having triplets, and I'm sure everyone wanted to gawk at them and touch them, he and his wife came up with a sign to keep people away. Or at least to get people's attention. You gotta, just gotta wash your hands when touching babies! They put their hands in their mouth. Don't touch their feet either.....they put those in their mouth too! Be considerate, be clean. Hands off baby!
Hang this sign on an infant car seat handle or attach it to your stroller canopy. They also sell tees, tanks and bibs! They are currently working with hospitals and selling them in the gift shops. These are gonna be seen everywhere! Don't let your uncomfortableness stop you from keeping germs, flu's and diseases from touching your child. Pick up a Hands Off Baby today!
