On the shelves in supermarkets and drug stores you are able to find a lot of cleaning and washing agents which have a germ-killing effect. However, all this won’t be necessary once you bring your baby home: if everything is clinically hygienic, the risk of allergies will increase. Furthermore, the disinfectants could attack your little one’s tender skin and lead to eczema in the worst case. The right dose is important, since your baby is more likely to get infections and diseases. However, disinfectants and cleaning cloths should be used sparingly.
At the very beginning of his life, you should support the immune system of your baby specifically: bottle soother and dummies have to be boiled out or sterilized in the steamer every day that everything stays germ-free. The same applies for Cups for learning how to drink and bottles. Once your child starts crawling it should be enough to wash these in the dish washer at 60°. If you don’t have one you can wash it at hand right after using so that the germs won’t aggrandize. If your child is a year old you can simply wash it off under hot water to clean it.
You not only prepare food for yourself in the kitchen, but also for your baby. That’s why you should always keep everything hygienic and clean. Cleaning cloths and disinfectants are useful if you want to clean surfaces on which you had raw meat or similar things.
The most important tips for hygiene in the kitchen:
Even if your baby is still very small, disinfectants are rarely necessary. Clean your flat once a week, this should be enough. If someone is ill and contagious, you should do it more often of course. Disinfectants should really only be used if there are germs all over the place. Please also keep an eye on cleansing agents which are bio-degradable.
Every which lays in your baby’s hands ends up in his mouth: the younger your baby is, the cleaner everything should be. While you are able to control cleanliness at home, you are not able to do in at the playground or in the garden. Especially while being on the go, surfaces and other objects can quickly be cleaned with a cleaning cloth. However, there are things which do not belong in a baby’s or toddler’s mouth at all: That applies for all things which are passed through many hands such as bunch of keys or coins, but also for the content of cat toilets or rubbish bins.
Hygiene is important if you are living with a baby or toddler. Antibacterial cleansing agents are however, usually not only unnecessary, but also harmful, although it’s always something else when someone in the household is ill. The kitchen is the most sensitive area in a household: Hygiene is especially important while preparing food.
