I think most mothers worry about germs. I definitely did with Boo and all I really had to worry about then was the dog sniffing her dummy.
Now, not only could the dog lick Baby G but his big sister tends to pass me his bottles and dummies by the teat and we live on the farm where germs are lurking everywhere.
Just look at this photo:
The lamb licked G’s hand and he put it in his mouth before I could get a wipe and the thing is, wipes don’t really kill germs.
The only option I could think of was alcohol sprays and gels but I am not happy to use them with a baby and even bleach-based products can take up to 15 minutes to be sterile.
Thankfully, Vital Baby sent me some of their Acquaint sanitising water which, to be completely honest, has been the answer to my prayers.
It contains no alcohol and is basically a water which kills all germs.
Aquaint is a revolutionary 100 per cent natural Cleansing Water that also kills 99.9 per cent of Bacteria in seconds. The water provides the base for it to be highly effective as a cleanser. Its only other ingredient, a NATURAL ACID (Hypochlorous Acid) which is produced in the human body to fight bacteria and germs, provides its antibacterial properties.
Over half term, we visited a petting farm and I took it along with us. Boo’s hands got sprayed as did my own.
You can safely also spray soothers, feeding equipment and tables.
As we are voyaging on the weaning journey I can see just how easy it will be (germs-wise) I know I can safely spray Baby G’s high chair and feeding equipment if they fall on the floor or get messy.
At least now Boo can still stroke the dog and help with her brother thanks to Vital Baby and their Aquaint Water.
It should be in everyone’s kitchen and change bag.
Vital Baby Aquaint Water is available in Boots, John Lewis, Mothercare, Toys R Us, Ocado, Amazon, Mamas and Papas and JoJo Maman Bebe and online at www.vitalbaby.co.uk
