Look but “Please Don’t Touch Baby”.

Having a baby again, I had forgotten how much other people love babies. I cannot go to a store without people swooning and goo gah gah-ing at my handsome little guy.

Not that I blame them. He is utterly adorable.

How to Keep People from Touching My Baby.

And if I forget to put on his socks? People can’t resist coming up to touch his little toes. I can’t keep my hands off his feet either.

But I’d rather not have strangers touching my baby when I’m out and about. That sounds like I’m a grump. But in reality, there are germs, illnesses, flu and all kinds of icky things he isn’t immune to that could be lurking on the kind hand of a stranger in the produce aisle. I’m also the type of person who has trouble asserting myself in situations where I’m uncomfortable.

I found these Please Don’t Touch Baby tags one day surfing the Internet and I was so excited to find their adorable signs.

The tags come in a variety of phrases for example one that says “Your Germs Are Too Big For Me, Please Don’t Touch”.

You can hang them on your stroller, carrier, shopping cart, cribs, diaper bag, or anywhere your little cutie is sitting to gently let people know you’d rather they not touch your baby.

Each sign is large enough for people to read easily and is a nice way of saying “hands-off”.

I keep mine in my diaper bag so I can easily whip it out while I’m out shopping with my little man. I’ve not had any trouble with strangers touching him since (but we still get the goo gah gah’s) and I’m a happier mom for it.
