Is Your Baby Gear's Spa Day Up to Snuff? 🛁👶

Is Your Baby Gear's Spa Day Up to Snuff? 🛁👶

Navigating the baby gear disinfection game with COVID-19 in the mix? We've got your back! Dr. Patricia Garcia from Connecticut Children’s Healthy Homes program is here to sprinkle some wisdom. Let's keep it short and snappy:

How Often to Clean? If it's visibly yucky, clean it up! For daily MVPs, clean more often. Teething toys? Hit 'em a few times a day.

Disinfectant Dilemma? Natural cleaners are cool, but they often skip the disinfecting party. Baby wipes? Nope. Opt for a diluted bleach solution or EPA-approved disinfectants. Soap and water? The classic never fails.

Gear Disinfection Guide:

  • Plastic Toys: Soap, water, or disinfectant.
  • Plush Toys: Gentle cycle, low tumble.
  • Fabric Gear: Check washing instructions, usually gentle cycle.
  • Plastic Gear: Sink or hose it down, or disinfectant wipe dance.
  • Teething Items: Suds up with soap and water.
  • Stroller Handles: Wipe with disinfectant wipes or spray.
  • Clothes and Bedding: Regular wash and dry party.
  • Bottles, Cups, Spoons: Soap and water, or dishwasher-safe dance.
  • Breast Pump: Check the manual, don't guess.

Keep it clean, keep it fun! 🚿✨
