Why shouldn’t you allow friends to touch and kiss your baby on the face?
As the skin of baby face is very thin and sensitive, it is not that much hygienic to kiss baby on the face.
You should allow so long as they have washed their hands. Unless the baby is born with a condition or something that makes them high risk, then germs are actually good for them in small amounts. The children with the most allergies (studies are showing) were the babies that were kept away from the most germs, dogs, cats, etc.
Many people are concerned about germs but I learned in one of my medical terminology classes that it is possible to pass many diseases such as flu, cold, and even herpes to a baby in this manner and this is why some doctors will recommend to parents not to let people kiss the baby's face. People can be contagious whether or not they know it and whether or not the parents of the child know. I shudder when I see people/adults kissing kids on the lips.
Think about how often babies rub their faces with their hands or put their hands into their mouths. We have several mucous membranes on our faces and babies commonly rub their faces and could get disease causing germs/matter onto their hands which are often put in their mouths, nose, or eyes. If I was a mother, which I am not, I would mention to those holding my child to kiss the baby on the high on the top of the head or not at all for this reason. And if they have a problem with this then they don't have to have such close contact with my child. The child's health is of the utmost importance and the parents must do their best to be informed and inform others.
Germs. People carry all kinds of germs, they could have been exposed to a cold but not having symptoms yet--then spread it to your baby. There is no reason for a friend to kiss your baby on the face, or touch the baby's face either.
Yes, babies need exposure to various germs etc. but there is also a chance of the baby picking up something their body is not mature enough to handle. I am speaking mostly of newborns.
Duff is very lucky, you are one smart mom! I couldn't resist
LOL - had to laugh. Duffy was my chocolate lab, lived over 13 years - the greatest dog on earth. I love my kids so I'm not sure why the dog got top billing - oh well!! :-)
A newborn can be affected so easily with germs so one has to be careful of others touching the baby, definitely clean hands and make sure nobody kisses the baby on the face or lips.
