Johnson & Johnson Has Been Using Toxic Chemicals In Baby Products!

johnson johnson products toxic chemicals asian child

This one is a shocker!

Johnson & Johnson, the company that gives us that wonderful baby smell with their "no more tears" products has been using cancerous chemicals this whole time!!

Which ones?

Dioxane, Quaternium-15, and Formaldehyde!!!

The chemicals are described as:

Dioxane is classified as a probable human carcinogen by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It is known to be carcinogenic in animals and is suspected to damage the central nervous system, liver and kidneys.

Quaternium-15 is a preservative that kills bacteria by releasing formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde has legitimate uses as both a disinfectant and embalming fluid. Formaldehyde was named a human carcinogen by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in June 2011.

Fortunately, JJ has bucked up and were probably forced to decided to begin phasing the chemicals out…within the next two years.

But think of how many people have been using these products on their children?? We know people who still use it on themselves! It makes for a great face wash in the shower if you have stubborn eye make-up.

But wow, we'll definitely be telling friends to halt their use until 2014!

No more tears?? Uhm, have you ever been to a funeral??

Things You Don’t Need To Pack When Traveling With Baby…

Things You Don’t Need To Pack When Traveling With Baby

While it may feel sometimes when traveling with a baby that you’re lugging along everything and the kitchen sink, Have Baby Will Travel’s founder, family travel expert Corinne McDermott shares items you definitely DO NOT need to cram into your carry-on luggage…

Airplane seat covers: (pictured above)
When you’re boarding a plane with a child in tow, you barely have a second to get organized, and you now have to slip on a seat cover? Never mind the fact that you won’t have time to do this, it doesn’t even cover the most germ-laden areas, the arm rests and tray tables.

Get yourselves seated, then give the arm rests, tray tables, and safety card a quick wipe with an antibacterial wipe, then make sure baby keeps her hands out of her mouth.

Airplane “hammocks”: (pictured below)
This gets surprisingly good reviews on various online retailers, but even if you manage to install it correctly, I can’t see it being entirely safe. If you can’t depend on the guy sitting in front of you not to give you the stink eye, how can you depend on him not to suddenly recline accidentally or on purpose?

Baby Carrier/Car Harness: (pictured below)
Don’t. Just don’t. If you’re traveling by car, your baby needs to be safely secured in an approved and properly installed car seat. Yes, car seats are a hassle to lug along when you’re traveling, but what is a little inconvenience when it comes to your baby’s safety. Bring the car seat. Or rent one when you get where you’re going. Or take public transit so you don’t have to worry about it. But please, please, don’t put your baby in something that markets itself as a carrier/car seat.

Disney's Going After Newborns

disney-launches-new-division-disney-baby.jpg

Expecting parents better start saving now because Disney wants to profit off your newborn — straight out of the womb!

Last month, the house of mouse sent out a representative to 580 United States maternity hospitals to push their newest division, Disney Baby.

The Disney rep would offer the new moms who were still drugged up a FREE Disney Cuddly Bodysuit or as the rest of the world knows it: the onesie.

Clever marketing right?

As we all know, nothing is ever really free, so to seal the deal Disney asks for an email address so they can constantly spam your inbox send you updates of the latest products from DisneyBaby.com.

Disney says they plan to give away 200,000 of their bodysuits by May, which is when 85 style will be available for purchase on Amazon.com and they're surprisingly affordable. Prices start at $9.99 for two.

Not bad.

After bowing on Amazon, Disney Baby will crawl on over to Target and Nordstrom where the line will expand further.

How long until they construct a Disney hospital next door to the theme parks???
