For a moment I cringed!!! But what else ould I do? I came home and washed her face and hands..Hope she wont fall sick!!! She goes thru enough colds and colds from her play school...!

How is your little one doing? Good job getting her cleaned up and as germ-free as possible quickly after the incident.

I was always appalled by how many random people wanted to touch my baby's face when she was just barely months old. Great goodness people, you probably aren't even getting the children sick, but you sure are giving us mamas a few heart attacks each year! :-D

Please keep us posted on your DD!

Oh my, the nerve of that guy who happened to be near yourdaughter when he experienced a biological reflex. I'm sure it seems gross, but it wasn't even ON her. Everytime you take your daughter out in public you expose her to germs. The germs from that man's sneeze are probably only a small fraction of all the germs she encountered in the grocery store. Even if she does come down with a cold, you will never be able to blame it on the sneeze. She can pick up cold viruses anywhere. I hope she doesn't get sick.
