We’ve got a baby theme running on Ecorazzi today — but rather than organic accessories or food — we’re chatting about health-related issues. First up was Amanda Peet and her view on child vaccinations. Now, we’ve got Katie Holmes spraying down an entire playground with sanitizer before letting her kid climb all over it.

“Hubby Tom Cruise was reshooting scenes for his long-delayed film “Valkyrie” on the grounds of a Pasadena, CA church in late June when Katie and Suri dropped by to visit, according to an insider. Katie agreed to let Suri play, but not before she gave the nearby swings, benches and small jungle gym the once-over with spray and squirt bottles of sanitizer and disinfectant, said the source….“She even made an antsy Suri stay in the car until she accomplished her mission. Katie could be overheard telling her, ‘Hang on, honey. I’ll be done soon…’”
Two ways to look at this: One, Holmes is a first-time mom and I know lots of people who swear their first kid gave them the most stress with regards to germs. By the third kid, they were pretty much letting them eat cookies off the floor. Two, Mrs. Cruise is setting up an environment that will not benefit young Suri’s immune system and may lead to allergies or other deficiencies later on.
The whole thing doesn’t seem very ‘natural’ to me — especially at the level Holmes is approaching it. What do you think?
