HONESTLY, do you wash your hands every time you change your LO's diaper?

I do when its poop, or when the pee gets on my hands.
Im wondering why we wash our hands when we go to the bathroom, but dont always when we change someone else. And dont say u wash ur hands every time...u and i both know thats a lie!!!!!!!!!!! lol

  • i have sanitizer sitting next to the changing table, and i try to remember to use it on a regular basis, but if he's screaming bloody murder and i know the only way to hush him is to pick him up i may forget.
    as far as for my daughter, shes potty training so when i wipe her i always wash my hands b/c shes being taught to wash hers and we are right there next to the sink.

  • Only for poop and sometimes I use only baby wipes after that. For pee I don't b/c I don't wipe my son

  • I hardly ever wash my hands after I change him. Only if I get it on me will I.

  • Nope! And I feel better knowing that I'm the only one who doesn't =] I try to use hand sanitizer though. I'll wash them if I'm going to feed her immediately after the diaper change.

  • I have sanitizer near the changing area, so I try to remember a "squirt" before she climbs off the table!!

  • I hardly ever do unless it's a really messy poop and I think I may have gotten some on me (or if I get it on me). I don't use wipes when he just pees, so I don't then. Heck, I don't even wash my own hands every time I use the bathroom (unless it's in public).
