I put what on my baby?!

What are DMDM Hydantoin and Sodium Borate?

Apparently, they are known carcinogens which are found in certain baby products, according to a report by the Environmental Working Group, an independent group which seeks to “expose threats to your health and the environment, and to find solutions.”

As part of their study, they took a look at babycare products, and have made their findings available via the link above.

I don’t want to enter into a discussion about how much of X is too much of X… the research is out there. Even at non-dangerous levels, I believe the more of the “bad stuff” you can keep out of and off of your child, the better. Every little bit helps.

    I agree to a point, but it’s also important to keep the eye on the big picture. Clean air, water are the most important things.

    In terms of diet, I mostly worry about keeping the lad away from omnipresent trans-fats. That stuff is nasty. And it’s everywhere.

    (Kaz: I hope to have many more posts about not just what you put on your baby, but what you put around your baby and in your baby. If some people try some of the stuff, the world and their babies will be better off. If you have any good links regarding any of these, please pass them along!)
