Hiya, I haven't posted in here very much, and I have a really silly question, but feel I can ask you all cos you all seem so nice here. I have always been an anxious person and since I had my daughter (who is now 15 mnths) developed an OCD type anxiety around my daughter geting sick. For example everything has to be perfectly clean and I am constantly washing my hand etc. I am recieving therapy for this and its going well. But I want another baby shortly and my therapist and I disagree on one thing and I wondered if you all could help. I used to make Nicola's bottles up with cooled boiled water leave them on the side and added the powder as needed, but I always wahsed my hands before I went to add milk powder. Do Mums who have used this method from birth or very young wash your hands before adding the milk owder to the cool boiled water or not worry. The reason I ask is my therapist thinks I don't need to but I feel I should do and its one issue I feel I need to clear up before I start trying for another baby. Thanks all for your help Sarah - proud Mum to Nicola monster munch!
