I was not aware that people will actually touch babies randomly. I know to expect strangers to pat my belly, but really? I guess if you are having that issue, a sign is necessary.

Ummmm, why is a sign neccessary? It’s a kid, not a tiger cage at the zoo.

HAHA that’d be weird if people randomly started touching my baby.  If it happened, yes, I think the sign is a good idea!

Having a baby, i totally understand having a sign, I was seriously considering making one. people that i have only talked to a handful of times assumed it was okay to put there hands on my babies face in the middle of the grocery store… you think people would know better!

Some babies may also have serious health risks that require the parents to be cautious about germs.  Its not like they can be expected to be locked up in their house forever, but they should be able to go into public without being touched and exposed to germs that could be dangerous to them!

@SecretName: I get that, but why is a sign necessary? Under what circumstance would a baby be left alone and the paren’t couldn’t be right there to say “Oh, please don’t touch him/her, thank you for understanding.”

@SecretName: My son is one of these babies, he has has cystic fibrosis, and I still never felt a need for a sign. I can usually tell when people are getting too close so I just say something about him having a cold a or something and ask them not to touch.

I would never randomly touch a stranger’s baby! Who does that?!

Lol! I would never personally do this but I do love the idea! I do agree though that usually if its strangers you can just ask them politely and they’ll back away. I am however tempted to make a sign for my belly to wear around overly eager family members!

I have young cousins as well as friends with babies and random people touching them has never been an issue. As a parent, its your job to monitor who comes into contact with your children. I don’t think a sign is necessary. In all honestly, if I saw one in real life it would definitely trigger an eye roll and I would probably make fun of it later.

To answer the question, no, I would never make a sign.

@KatyElle: I completely agree with you – I would never leave my baby so far that I would not be able to tell people not to touch; no sign needed!
