Derp: well…. with a newborn just out the hospital I wouldnt find it weird. I mean they dont have the same ability to fight off germs the way a developed adult or older child does. My baby is due in Feb and where I come from its flu season (there is some really bad ass stuff going around lately) and I probably will to ask people to make sure their hands are clean at last for a while. I agree kids need to get dirty to build up their systems and I will not be one of those crazys chasing them with wipes…. but when they are a newborn, I will be careful.
I get grossed out thinking about all the germs that get passed around in public transport and workplaces (I work in a paper enviroment where diff people are grabbing drawings and marking them up and passing them around (sneezing all over the place) and then getting on the bus hacking and coughing everywhere and holding onto the handles after wiping their noses in their gloves….UGH, disgusting. Sorry for that image but that was pretty much my life until I got a job where I can drive (although I still have to take the company shuttle part way which is just as bad) lol…. but my point is people touch a LOT of SHYTE in the run of the day they dont realize. If I had a summer baby I probably wouldnt be as wary but I will definatly look out for sickness in winter.
