Getting the world ready ( Dettol )

When I was contacted by dettol asking me about my experience with Bodhi  and hygiene worries when he was 1st born , when Bodhi born five weeks early  ( read Bodhi's birth story )  I had no nesting time so I didn't get a chance to wash new born clothes or even get the cot set up !! Having a premature baby adds extra worry to your mind. Your child is so small and vulnerable to the big wide world around them. Bodhi was also born in January and we had snow, also I had a c-section so we didn't leave the house much those 1st few months. 

I did always make sure we had antibacterial hand soap in both the bathroom and kitchen and asked visitors to keep away if they had coughs and colds. I also found that antibacterial wipes became a very handy household friend second only to the baby wet wipe , I found these perfect for a quick whip over of the change Matt or high chair. Touch wood bodhi is a pretty healthy kid it's only now he has started at nursery school that he is getting snotty nose and colds. 

We was kindly sent very kindly sent a can of dettol all in one disinfect spray , I found think prefect for use on sofas/beds and rugs if needed ( thankfully I haven't needed to use it yet for killing sickness bug germs ) I have also been using it in my bathroom cleaning routine on my toilet and taps. We also sent a bottle dettol antibacterial laundry cleanser I have used this to wash the bedding and towels, makes everything not only smell really clean and fresh but it's also peace of mind that they are clean and germ free also. 

Whether you’re a first-time mum or you’ve been through it all before, a little help to get everything ready for your new arrival can go a long way. 
No matter how clean your home is, it’s essential to take extra care when you’re preparing for the arrival of a new-born or have a toddler keen to explore.   Adopting these simple hygiene habits will ensure that your home is hygienically clean and safe for your little one:
Healthier Surfaces
·         Nurseries should be kept free of harmful germs, especially in the first few weeks.  Don’t forget it’s not just the changing mat and cot that can harbour germs but also frequently touched areas like the door handles and light switches.  Dettol Anti-bacterial Surface Cleanser has no taint, no odour and no bleach and is suitable for use in baby contact areas. 
Germ Free on the Go   
·         From that first night in the hospital to the first trip out,  keep car seats, highchairs and all your baby equipment germ free with Dettol Anti-bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipes which kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and are great for hard to reach surfaces and on the go. 
·         Keeping your hands clean, before and after handling your little one, is really important to make sure germs don’t spread. If you’re feeding, changing, or perhaps handling food or pets, try our Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System. It automatically dispenses anti-bacterial Hand Wash, after you place your hands under the nozzle to help prevent the spread of germs. 
Added Laundry Protection
·         It’s not just re-used baby clothes and bedding that can harbour germs, new ones can too! While washing at low temperatures is kind to baby’s clothes, it doesn’t offer protection against bacteria which can survive below 60˚C. Use our unique Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser alongside your normal detergent and softener to guarantee hygienic cleaning, even at temperatures as low as 15˚C.
