This is the time of year when children's homework becomes part of the afternoon and evening family-time agenda during the week. Parents work all day, the kids are in school all day, and we all are grateful when we get together at the end of the day and spend some time together over the dinner table and maybe watching a movie or TV show on the sofa.

Toxic Free Baby Products

Posted by Technical Support User on 6/14/2014 to Baby Care
All baby bottles, baby food containers and even baby toys should be BPA, PVC and Phthalate free. But unfortunately, due to the mass production of these items, proper regulation of the substances used in our baby’s products falls by the wayside. And as it stands today all baby products are not made equal. If adults are encouraged to buy BPA free, PVC and Phthalate free water bottles and containers, imagine the effect on our little ones if exposed to these toxic chemicals.

Saving for Beginners
