My son was born about 3 1/2 weeks early and spent 8 days in the NICU. When we went to leave with him, the nurse warned us that he would be more susceptible to RSV, flu, and winter illnesses for his first couple years due to his immune system not having 9 months to develop. SO, I have always tried to be more careful with who and what he is around if people are sick.
With RSV, flu, and all the winter illnesses going around, I've been wondering about this for awhile, and I'm never sure if I clean my son's toys enough. I try to after he has been sick and if I have had little kids over who have been sick. I generally use warm water with a little bleach mixed in and let the toys dry. However, I have never been sure how to sanitize my son's plush toys. I've followed the directions and I'm never quite sure that they are clean. So, how often, and with what do you sanitize your child's toys?
