Every new mom is a germaphobe, especially once your baby starts to touch everything and then put it into his mouth. A simple outing can turn into a buffet of germs. But you can’t exactly keep everything away from baby, but can try to keep him somewhat clean without being obsessive.
At the supermarket I used to carry my son in the baby bjorn, but now that he can sit up it was time to look for a shopping cart cover. Some are just plain ugly, some too expensive, so after a little research I found one that seems to do the trick and it’s also a high chair cover. I like because it’s big, plays music, and easy to use.
