My baby sucks his fingers all the time and he is constantly picking up bugs. Can you think of a safe and effective product I can use to clean his fingers on the go? It's hard to wash his hands all the time because he is wiggly.

Its just one of those things that I have learn to let go honestly. If its extremely gross I of course wash their hands or before dinner but other than that I let it go.

For the most part I let it go, otherwise I just use a baby wipe.

Don't use an alcohol based sanitizer on a baby, there was a big thing around here last year about young kids and babies getting alcohol poisoning and getting very sick and ending up in the hospital because of it. The babies and young kids don't know not to put their hands back in their mouths before the alcolhol has evaporated. Our health unit now doesn't recommend it for children under 6.

I echo the wipes. You can even pick up a handy travel pack to carry in your purse. At times, I'll make my own and stuff some into a ziplock bag.
Thank you claire1979 for my cute new siggy!
