I dropped my nieces dummy in toilet at a pub! Fished it out,

Resolved Question:

I dropped my nieces dummy in toilet at a pub! Fished it out, washed with hand soap then rinsed in warm water and gave back to baby (she's 7 months). This was 2 days ago and she's been fine but I'm worried she could pick up an underlying bug

Dear customer, My suggestion would be to throw away that dummy. Don't use it any more. Vigorous washing with soap for at least a minute would have killed most of the germs. But still this is not 100% effective, and hopefully she won't develop any infection. Take care.
