A sign of the times? A new product warns people your baby is hands off.
Momlogic's Momstrosity: For those nervous moms who have never let another human being touch their baby unless they scrub down like a doctor before surgery -- there's a new product for you!
A company called My Tiny Hands has come up with the idea of a sign you can hang in your baby's stroller or carrier that tells people with unwashed hands not to touch. Kind of like the "Don't feed the animals" signs they put up at the zoo. We think this "invention" goes a little overboard, and perhaps the real sign that should be worn is by the mom:
Of course, the tiny little sign (which sells for $4.75) can be useful, says pediatrician and momlogic contributor Dr. Cara Natterson. "It's a nice, gentle reminder to people. If nothing else, it is a good deterrent for most people who just reach right in and touch babies."
But hey, why stop at just telling people to wash their hands when you can tell them how to behave around your kid too:
