As if we need more Jewish guilt

Who would ever think that  popular brand baby bottles, pacifiers, and toys could possibly be dangerous to our kids health?

This week, Earth Day prompts us all to be aware of the chemicals in the environment and in our homes.

Pregnancy and early childhood are critical times in babies’ lives because they are growing and developing so rapidly. During this time they are vulnerable to elements in their environment, and we as  parents should protect them as much as possible from exposure to potentially harmful substances.

PolyVinyl Chloride (PVC) is a hard plastic that requires harsh chemical softeners, such as phthalates, to make it appropriate for use in soft plastic baby toys such as squirty toys.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is used in hard, clear plastics sometimes used in baby toys to prevent breakage.

In 2003 it was shown that products  manufactured with PVC  and BPA were shown to disrupt reproductive functions and cause other developmental problems.

Make sure your baby products are also Nitrosamine free: Nitrosamines are found in latex products such as some infant teethers. They have been shown to cause cancer in many animals.   Make sure  all your teethers and soothers are nitrosamine free.

Check out the items below. Do your research, and be informed.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever
    before.
