Do You Wash Your Hands After Every Diaper Change?

Most moms would say that they wash their hands after they use the restroom or assist their children in doing so, but what about when they change baby? A diaper can be swapped out almost anywhere from a parent's lap to a blanket on a grassy field, and not all locations have access to soap and water. Do you rinse your hands with bottled water, use hand sanitizer, or make use of a baby wipe? Maybe it never even crosses your mind? Does it make a difference if the nappy is soiled compared with one that is just wet? Fill us in on your diapering hygiene!

I only wash my hands if they smell after a very dirty diaper change. No one wants hands that smell like poop. Yuck. I use hand sanitizer once in a while, but when I do, my son wants some also!

I'm a freak about washing my hands (with soap and water) after changing diapers. But, I just use a wipe to or bottled water to do it if we are somewhere like a park without a restroom.

If I am unable to wash my hands, I at least use a diaper wipe.

I stick with hand sanitizer - its right on the changing table, next to the diaper cream.

For pee, not all the time, especially in the early morning when I'm just trying to get her in and out and back to sleep. For poop, I would think everytime and I always use an extra wipe right after till I make it to the bathroom.

I always do hand sanitizer and wash my hands whenever I'm able.
