Let’s face it, we have every right to be one this year! I was shocked when I took Noodle to the grocery store last week and no less than 5 people reached out and touched her. Most of her medical issues have resolved, but if she gets sick then she refuses to eat. This means tons of weight loss, and back to tube feeding. As a 17 pound 16-month old, she has NO ROOM to lose weight!
I searched high and low for a tag for her stroller before remembering that I saw one on one of my favorite blogs, Caleigh’s Corner. As a mom of a special needs child, I appreciate the way that Caleigh’s mom describes her daily highs and lows. I’ve learned so much from her! Anyways, after an email to her she generously sent a link to My Tiny Hands, who make stroller tags to ask strangers not to touch the baby. You’d think this would be common sense, but… let’s just say apparently it’s not.
I’m sure all moms can use these, not just special needs moms, so I thought I’d share. This flu season, we can use all the reinforcements we can muster! The signs come in red, pink, and blue. They also have one in Spanish. I know I may be going overboard, but these signs make sense to me. Let me know if you end up getting one. Am I alone in the please-don’t-touch-my-baby school of thought this flu season?
