Ok. so like the other about to be new mothers ive ben freaking out. Now I saw something on the news years ago about how hand sanitizer is bad for infants because of the tricluson (spelling?) so is hand sanitizer ok while your pregnant? Ive googled it and googled it and its 50/50 if its good or bad.. has anyone spoke to their doctor about this?

I've never heard of it being bad while pregnant, however, in general, hand sanitizer is not all it's cracked up to be.

I remember seeing that while the bottle says it's 99% effective, that in reality it's only about 50% You're much better off washing your hands with good ol' plain soap and water!
Thank-you Bokkechick for the beautiful siggy!
