The good news is you can protect your baby from infection by:
- Washing your own hands often
- Keeping shared toys and surfaces clean with a ten percent water-and-bleach solution or other disinfectant
- Using sanitizing wipes or changing pads on public surfaces – for instance, on shopping-cart handles and public changing tables
But don’t sweat the dog slobber: Your baby can’t catch any parasites from dog toys or a quick lick on the cheek or high chair tray. If you let your pooch clean your high chair or dishes after a meal, it doesn’t hurt to rinse the baby’s tray and dishes thoroughly in warm, soapy water or in the dishwasher, though.
