    Honestly, unless one of the kids is actually suffering from and infection, you’re probably fine. Hand washing with regular soap does the trick for most of the critters on and in our bodies.

    I couldn’t do it, though. As a scientist, I processed bear poop and rotten wolf meat, but every time I see a mom eat something her baby was sucking on, I get the wiggins.

      I even say the ABC’s in my head to make sure I wash for 30 seconds LOL

      Yeah everyone has their own squicks 🙂

    Can you imagine if you had used gloves every time one of your personal kids needed a diaper change? My husband often jokes about all the bodily fluids that came in contact with his face from our youngest! He probably ingested some! I don’t think you’re crazy, you are giving Squirt unconditional care. More awesome power to you!

      Thanks, and yeah it’s kind of gross to think about how many fluids I’ve come into contact with!

    I’m with girl-child! Gross. I remember being at the park when a friends’ little one ran up to me with yogurt all over her hands and face. I think I screamed and practically tipped my chair over in an attempt to get away from her. When she offered up a spoon of yogurt, I may have gagged. At least I politely said, ‘no, thank you.’ I rarely ate something my own child offered up, let along someone elses.

      LOL I wish I had seen that. I know other people that are so not into sharing food and drinks. Normally it doesn’t bother me.
