    Where I live we have a giant mud bath party for the kids one a year. The council puts it on and it's free. I plan on taking DS this year as it looks like soooo much fun!!

    I freak about stranger's poo germs, but a bit (or a lot) of mud doesn't bother me

    Did you know that the 29th June is international mud day?

    Also, an article below on the best way to protect children from allergies is letting them play with dirt.

    Everyone has their own views and opinions which is perfectly fine. I think a healthy and reasonable exposure to germs is good and builds stronger children. I would have used the nappy if it landed on the outside of the nappy, but probably would have thought twice if it landed open on the floor.

    Yes. I will admit to not exposing my dd to enough mud play but her after school care is so wonderful for dirty play. She comes home filthy and happy. There are very few messes that can't be cleaned up.

    I think it is important for kids to understand some activities are clean, some are messy and some are downright dirty.

    FYI. I would have used the nappy. All kids get their feet on the floor and sometimes gets those feet in his/her mouth.

    Default Wwyd: Nappy dropped on ground

    This thread reminds me of this video.

    I am the "blasé" mum for sure! Always have been. Even when I only had one baby I have always been ok with germs etc.

    Articles like that s*** me to tears. Most allergies develop at quite a young age so dirt exposure doesn't come into it.
    Sorry its a sore point for me.
