Are The Baby Products We Use Safe?

Increasingly we are hearing about toxic chemicals being found in baby products.  Officials are examining the chemical BPA to determine whether to issue a public health advisory or outright ban on its use in baby products.  Products such as baby bottles, pacifiers, and sippy cups all contain BPA.  Recent investigations have found this chemical may cause developmental problems and other illnesses in fetuses and young children.

While some major retailers such as Wal-Mart promised to eliminate BPA bottles from their shelves, manufacturers Gerber and Playtex agreed to stop using the chemical in bottles.  Click here for more information on BPA.
