It’s cold season, and our house has already been hit with a couple of them. Luckily we haven’t had anything too bad, just a couple of rounds of sniffles and coughs. We all know that the first battle against the cold germs is washing your hands, so I hear myself on constant repeat these days, “Cover your mouth when you cough/sneeze. Now go wash your hands, and don’t touch your baby sister.” I can’t tell you how many times I have said that in the last 24 hours alone. It seems that my ever-constant
nagging reminding is working because at least my four year old does so without much protest.
Of course, there is more to hand washing then just splashing a bit of soap and water on them. Ya gotta scrub! That’s why we taught our daughter to sing “Happy Birthday” when she washes her hands, which she still does. For a fun twist to this training, Homedics as released an automatic soap dispenser that plays a song to tell you how long to scrub. So cute and handy!
Not only does this soap dispenser come in a fun giraffe shape, it is refillable with any soap of your choice. (We had one of the Lysol soap dispensers for a while, but I got tired of the expensive refills.)
I wish I had this when K was learning to wash her hands, and I know it will be great when baby girl gets there soon. In the mean time, K thinks it is a ton of fun!
The Homedics mybaby automatic soap dispenser with training song makes hand washing fun. The mybaby automatic soap dispenser works with all liquid hand soaps and plays a 20-second song that teaches children how to wash hands properly. Motion sensor technology provides sanitary, touch-free operation and a magnetically attached drip tray removes easily for cleaning. A self-cleaning function prevents clogs and mess. Uses 3 AA batteries, not included.
Great Gift For – While I put this in the kids category in the gift guide because that’s who would use the gift the most, it’s secretly a gift for mom because it makes her life easier! It would be a great gift for a new mom or any mom with small children. It is brand new, so chances are she wouldn’t already have one. Plus it is handy after changing diapers.
Buy It – The Homedics mybaby automatic soap dispenser with training song is available from Target. Homedics also makes a Touch-free Hand Sanitizer dispenser. I haven’t tried it myself, but I also think it would be great for a nursery or even an office desk (this one is sleek looking for adults).
Sample provide, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
