Keeping Germs Away From Your Baby

The cooler weather has arrived and unfortunately it also brings with it the flu and other not-so-fun colds and illnesses. One easy tip that can help keep some germs away from your baby is to pack a placemat in your travel bag for when you eat out. If your child isn’t eating off a plate yet, a placemat provides a clean surface instead of your child eating off a restaurant table. While it can’t keep all germs away from your baby, it can at least give your baby a clean eating surface which can go a long way especially during flu and cold season.

What tips do you have for protecting your children from the flu and colds?

    I purchased a travel placemat at Babies R Us for our daughter and it works great when we are out to eat. It suction cups to the table, rolls up tightly for to store in our diaper bag and is dishwasher safe. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2908461

    Thanks Abby! We love to hear about products that are tried & tested by mommies. :)

It makes perfect sense to me that his imagination and curiosity cannot be taught to him by way of academics and instruction, but must simply come from letting him be a natural little boy. If you hear mommy screams coming from my general vicinity, please call the police. (image Kolcraft) [...]
