Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

im not quite sure because of the fumes,but u can surely ask your doctor and find out
I am not sure either but I have read in one of my parenting magazines to use vinegar and water solution. That's what I use for toys, that's not machine washable. I think the formula for it is 1pt vinegar to 3pt water. I just guess and use what looks good. Remember if you do use this to rinse with clear water after.
I was told not to bacause of the strong fumes and many chemicals used in lysol. There are many organic wipes and sprays that kills germs!!!
I dont see that my post uploaded, but I use Melaleuca. Its special order, but its much safer for kids. No safety caps needed. But since you're due any day now - use Wet Ones. They are much more effective at killing nasty germs
