Editor’s Pick: Did I do that to you?


I am just realising how unthinking, inconsiderate and clueless most people are when it comes to babies.  So many think that it’s not only okay to reach out and touch a new born, but that it is wanted and good manners!  Well, if you ASK first, and WASH your hands second!!!

I’m so seriously fed up with random people reaching out and grabbing my baby’s hands, even before I have noticed they were near!  Do they think they are doing me or my baby a favour?  Even if your hands are spotless, because you just washed or sanitized, I don’t know that.  At least for decency, to ease my fears, make a point of cleaning them in my presence, before going ahead and touching my infant!

And I don’t care how clean your hands are, please don’t go holding hands with my baby.  I don’t know about yours or others, but his hands are his second favourite food after my breastmilk!  So, within seconds, whatever you touched your hand with while holding him, will end up in his mouth.  Please, I don’t mean to be rude but, THINK!
