Chemicals in Baby Products..

So once I made my post about being concerned about the chemicals in cosmetic products (especially those used on my children), I have received an overwhelming amount of information. I am glad to see that I am not the only mother with those concerns. And I do have to tell you that I am far from being true "hippie" If I were a true "hippie", I would be more peaceful instead of bitter about the scrutiny I seem to be getting over being concerned about my children's health. Nothing like being mocked for trying to make the best choices for your children. None the less, the information out there is no less that frightening. Before I announce the winner of my ECOSTORE USA GIVEAWAY, I want to tell you about a sale they have going on. For the month of August, if you spend more than 50 dollars, they will double your order! Plus, they have free shipping for orders over 25 dollars. I made my order yesterday so I can get stocked up while it's on sale. With the sale, it came out way cheaper than the chemical free stuff I've bought in the store.

Also very useful is this website where you can go and check the levels of toxins in your current baby care products.

Cosmetic database

and here is a news story that I came across.

I must say, it got my attention..

And now, the winner selected by a random drawing at, is Elodie over at, Grinning While Growing! Congratulations Elodie!! I have e-mailed Melissa to let her know you are the winner. She will be e-mailing you with a Code to enter for 25 dollars off! I'd love to hear what you think once you get your products. Your gift certificate will apply to the 50 dollar doubling deal if you want to do that. Make sure you get some of that baby moisturizer. It is divine!

Shame on people!! I don't know why people feel that they have the right to belittle someone for doing what they think is right for their children. It is not like you are neglecting or starving them. If they don't agree with reducing chemicals, fine, don't do it, but they don't need to belittle a person who does want to reduce them. You didn't belittle them...very agravating!
Lord give me patience!

Try to brush off what people say. You're making what you think are the best choices for your baby and so are they. It's all a learning process... I try not to get too wrapped up in the media saying this or that is bad, but to each their own.

Your blog is adorable. Looking forward to reading more from you soon.

I've been going green for a couple of years now (not 100%) but for cleaning products and laundry products. I've been using the method brand for baby thinking it was "green" and safer when I went to the link in the video the method brand (not necessary the baby products) were listed as moderate hazards. I am a little disappointed. However I did just return some baby products that I knew had the chemicals in them. There is too much to remember sometimes with the amount of chemicals and ingredients in a product.

Congrats to Elodie! I ordered a bunch of stuff from Ecostore. They email me to ask where I heard about them. Of course, I told them that I had a daughter-in-law who was doing a give-away for them.
They emailed back and thanked me for the information and said that the were thankful to Dana.
