    Sunshine_Sieben,

    I am interested in what you said about the fire retardants being linked to cancer. I have read this about adults' pillows as well. I don't suppose you know if there is any way to get bedding and children's clothes that haven't been treated this way?



    If you do know I'd really appreciate some info.

    Thanks

    Devon

    Logan gets skin irritations so i use Amolin Wash and Purity softner for all his clothes and towels. I find if i use normal powder his skin plays up. But they both smell soooo nice so i dont mind paying the little extra

    Baby clothes don't require a special detergent unless there is any kind of skin problem in your family. Babies can go through so many outfits a day and washing them in special detergent each and everytime is a cumbersome process.If your baby is not bothered by clothes washed in your family's regular detergent, there is no need to buy a special laundry soap just for the baby clothes.
