Another potentially harmful circumstance is your baby getting their hands on your pet’s dirty toys. Your pet probably sticks their nose in many places you’d rather them not—so you certainly don’t want your child playing with their pet’s toys that can be covered with germs.
- Wipe down the dirty toys, rinse them thoroughly with water, and then dry them off before sending your pet running around to fetch any of them.
- With fabric toys, you’ll want to hand wash them or run them through your washer to kill the germs.
By keeping the environment clean for your new baby and pet, you’ll be creating a happy and healthy foundation for their relationship. Implement these cleaning tips not just to help protect your baby, but also so that your pet and your child can begin an ever-lasting friendship.
