Hidden Dangers.. In Your HOUSE!?
I was surprised to learn of some household dangers that could be lurking since expecting a little one.. things we might not normally think of...
1 paint with high amounts of VOC.. obviously dangerous, but very much so in the newborn phase.
2 your make up products.. different skin care products can hold DBP, formaldehyde or toulene.
3 cleaning products.. obviously many things can be poisonous.
4 air quality.. how often do you really remember to change air filters?
5 mold.. a major YIKES that can sneak up/in houses.
6 plastics.. the whole "bottle" BPA issue to be aware of.
7 you water... purify it! (and never use it in a netty pot! ha)
8 your carpet... did you know your carpets are loaded with not only chemicals, but dust mites, dander and dirt?
9 your nursery.. the same VOCs can be found in baby furniture & linens.
10 your fridge... especially the way food is stored and handled.. if the baby gets in.. watch out!
Do any of these surprise you?
