I heard on the radio this a.m. that girls (age variances are dependant on ethniticy - african 25%, asian and caucasion rates are much less (boys much less so)) are now entering puberty at age 7-8. One theory points to BPA which produces estrogen-like chemicals.

Now BPA is in our teeth fillings too. sad2.gif

Quote: "In the end the team found that 16 percent of children with the highest levels of BPA exposure exhibited problems with behavior that included instances of depression, delinquent behaviors, acting out, and issues with attention and self-esteem."

Correction: Not everywhere.

Now banned from baby bottles and sippy cups.

Bisphenol A is only one of the estrogen mimicking chemicals still in use here as well. Parabens are another group of chemicals with the same properties that are still in use over here, only Denmark has banned the use of a couple of those in products for under 3 year olds. The use of parabens has increased 180% since the mid 1990s. Parabens are used as preservatives and are found in basically EVERY product produced to be applied on your body on a daily basis.

That stuff is EVIL! We've even stopped buying anything canned with a with liner. The amount it takes to affect people is unbelievably miniscule. Bottled water is out of the question, and anything that comes in clear plastic bottles.
We stopped all forms of fluoride and parabens as well. Never felt better. We stopped using shampoo and conditioner 6 months ago. We are essentially chemical free.

If everyone voted with their purse, their wouldn't be half the problems there are. We stopped feeding the beast altogether.

Some tips:

Be wary of the term “fragrance,” which is used to denote a combination of compounds, possibly including phthalates, which are a subject of recent concern because of studies showing they can mimic certain hormones.

Choose plastics with the recycling code 1, 2 or 5. Recycling codes 3 and 7 are more likely to contain bisphenol A or phthalates.

Yeah when you start reading the labels thoroughly and reading up on the meaning of it all you're likely to throw out most of your household products. I'm not putting anything on my skin I can't eat. Well maybe not olive oil soap but close enough...

I'm linking and posting this information to my niece who just had a baby. I hope she opts for the natural products instead.

Good idea US! hi5.gif Let's hope she listens to you, it's important stuff. Our skin as our biggest organ and defense against outer contaminants absorbs chemicals readily. We shouldn't really voluntarily smear our babies with this shït. damned.gif

Thanks JR, but she's having a rough time with her newborn because she is constantly hungry. gaah.gif

Well if she's breastfeeding that should be all good (if she has enough milk), hungry babies are better than the alternative. But it also matters what your niece eats of course.

Newborns can't eat solid food. If she's lucky and her doctor allows it, she may allow pablum at 4 months. Right now breastmilk and formula. I'm wondering if her breastmilk is thin, because I had the same problem. I begged the doctor to help me and she let me give pablum at 6 months. I was saved. yay.gif

Just wondering, for reasons I wont go into my ex refused to breastfeed, that stuck my son on formula (bad news IMO) and he was starving.
He wouldn't sleep, was a real nightmare. My ex's mom made him mashed potatoes unbeknown to us when she was babysitting, first time he slept all night since he was brought home from the horsepistol.
He was 3 mos. old.
Some kids just need more, I'm a firm believer in that. Nobody's doctor knows your baby better than you.
