I’ll bet Sarah’s son had the best breath in playgroup:
Here’s a tip on keeping binkies (pacifiers) somewhat clean in public. My son would never tolerate his binky being clipped to his person, so I was forever picking up, rinsing (or sometimes not!) and plugging him back in. Then I started carrying a small, watertight snack container filled with water and a dash of Listerine mouthwash in the diaper bag. Then when a binky hit the floor, I just popped it into the container, closed the lid and shook for a few seconds. The Listerine has an antiseptic that kills any germs that made it onto the pacifier in the 3.2 seconds it was on the floor.
