Babies and infants are notorious for putting random objects in their mouths. Many child development researchers have come to understand that this is just one of the many ways that children explore and discover the world about them. So we as caretakers would believe that toy-designers are putting our children’s health into consideration when devising the objects to help them learn and keep them amused, right? Not necessarily. Research is being conducted addressing several adverse chemicals which are being used in children’s toys on a regular basis. So what can we do? A strong instinct may be to stop buying toys altogether or buying those that companies assure are made from authentic and organic materials. But this may not be an accessible idea for everyone, nor is restricting your child’s play-things a healthful decision. So instead, we have searched the web to find a website that lists some of the regular chemicals you can be on the look out for. Naturepedic has done their homework on this issue. We highly encourage you to make use of this information and strive to keep out little one safe.
