How do you politely tell people to step away from your brand new squishy baby? 

You can tell them straight up and risk the rudeness that follows. Or, you can attach one of these cute no touching baby signs to your infant’s pram, which lets them know they need to kindly sod off.

It’s a common concern all new parents have – their newborn getting sick. And rightfully so. Parents lose their little ones every year to preventable infections like whooping cough and the flu.

A sneeze, a cough, a cuddle, even a kiss, might result in bub returning to hospital with a serious infection.

This is why tags4tots designed their “back away from the baby” signs. These colourful little tags stick to prams, carriers and capsules, alerting touchy feely people that their germs are not welcome near bub.

Oh he’s so cute… can I hold him? No, snotty stranger in the supermarket. You cannot.

No one wants to be THAT mum who is seen as crazy and overprotective. But, sometimes it’s necessary. Especially when people can’t seem to stop themselves from wanting to touch a baby. Or kiss a baby. Or cough all over a baby.

Yes, we get it. Babies are soft, squishy and simply irresistible. And babies love cuddles, right? Sure. But babies also love personal space. And not being groped by germy strangers.

Hands off the baby!

Although these no touching baby signs are great for all parents with newborns or kiddies that may already be battling an illness, they are especially awesome for parents with premature infants whose immune systems may not be quite ready to handle all that extra exposure.
