    Default Awkward Situation where I whimped out :-(

    Regardless of germs on toys that she has touched etc, its still a weird thing to do, and one I find rather disgusting!

    I'd do as MM suggested, or say 'oh bubs don't put fingers in your mouth' type talk?

    Did she do it for long?

    It's not a daycare centre and I never said anywhere that my baby was sucking on toys or the like there. She is nearly always strapped to me in a wrap, but I was specifically asked this time could I put her down in a baby 'area' so this worker could interact with her. She is never left around with toys there, so toys in the mouth aren't an issue.

    MZMmama, in answer to your questions:

    She did it the whole time bub was sitting in the baby area. The stimuli I spoke about in the initial post was mirrors so she could look at herself, but it was mainly so the worker could interact with her and yes, the finger was in her mouth the whole time she was sitting there. I haven't elaborated too much on the place etc, as I don't want the worker to stumble across this thread and have her feelings hurt etc. I just found it a very intimate and odd thing for someone to do to another person's child, much less an infant.
