But have slacken a little as she's gotten older. My husband reckons I use too much disinfectant stuff.... I say it's never too much
    In your situation maybe leave a numbered amount of toys out to play with mainly toys that are easy to wipe/wash and as soon as they leave do a big wipe down...
    I would be a bit more concerned about the chemicals in the disinfectant going into bubs mouth?
    Our bodies are built to fight germs but not chemicals.

    I hope that didn't come across as rude, I didn't intend in that way. I use to use disinfectant on my floors until I realised that it all would be going into bubs mouth.

    I was paranoid about others using my bubbas toys... Until he started daycare. There is no way they can prevent sharing and slobber exchanges in daycare. At that point I had to give up trying to control the situation otherwise I would have gone nuts.

    I totally agree so don't worry I didn't take offence to it. I use the wipes that are ok to be used on toys (that's what it says on the container) and as for my floors i use boiling water and white vinegar which is great.

    Also I only started using wipes in the last month as dd has stopped putting toys in her mouth. (Odd occasion) before that it was the steralizer or boiling water.

    I let them share everything unless the other child has been unwell.
    Children need to be exposed to germs to build immunity.

    I'm grossed out by it but we don't have any friends with babies similar ages. So no matter. I wash everything anyway so I'd allow it. Seriously though at the park DS kept putting grass in his mouth! I'm sure that's got more germs then a toy. Lol

    Haven't ever tried to stop it. There have been times when I've found it a bit disgusting, but the same goes for my daughter putting random sticks/grass/half eaten food in her mouth.

    If it really bothers you, then as a PP suggested, only keep out the easy-to-clean things

    I have no problems unless another baby was ill I would wash them afterwards if I was worried.

    I never even think about this. My son will put anything into his mouth, including the dogs if they would sit still long enough, so this never even crossed my mind. Even when playgroup babies come over, I'm not fussed if they suck on DS's toys.

    I agree. For this reason I now use vinegar to clean toys and floors and 2nd-hand board books I find at the op-shop.
