I use liquid hand sanitizer at least a dozen times a day, so to say that I have an issue with germs is totally an understatement.
I am a complete germophobe, far surpassing that of any first time mom I’ve ever seen, so taking my baby out in this germ-ridden world takes a little bit of planning and some extra special gear. My favorite germ barrier is the bi-o-pad by buti-bag. It’s a shopping cart cover, changing pad and highchair cover all in one, and with all the baby gear cluttering up my house and car I am always excited to find an item that can serve multiple purposes.
The super chic and soft bi-o-pad isn’t puffy and billowy like some other shopping cart covers. Instead, the bi-o-pad has a more blanket-like design that makes for quick installation in shopping carts and restaurant highchairs, and also is more compact and easy to transport. A cleverly placed flap of fabric covers the leg holes so that the bi-o-pad can quickly be converted into a changing pad. It is detailed with beautiful grosgrain ribbon that serves a dual purpose of disguising the seat belt slits. And when it’s rolled up, it fits nicely into my diaper bag so I always have it when I need it. This is a must-have item for any germ- and style-conscious mama!
