July 9, 2013 3 comments

Love the smell of a new car?  Before you take another deep breath, before you buckle in your newborn baby, or before you tell your kids to get in the car, think about the chemicals they will be breathing in and absorbing into their bodies.  The air quality in a car that has been “baking” in the sun (especially during the hot summer) will always be far worse than the air you breathe outside.

June 24, 2011 12 comments

This article will discuss the pros and cons of various types of nasal aspirators and ultimately lead you to choose the best nasal aspirator for your baby.

Parents are in distress when they see their child struggling to breathe especially when they are congested because of a cold or infection. In average, babies less than 2 years old do not know how to blow their noses. It is a learned behavior and there is a wide degree in ages to when babies can perform this action.

Not all detergents are created equal!

May 4, 2011 1 comment

There are many laundry detergents on the market.  Some brands we are all familiar with are Tide, Cheer, All, Arm & Hammer and so on.  But do they all clean cleanly?  Definition of clean from Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “clean” (used as an adjective) as free from dirt or pollution.  “Clean” (used as a verb) means to rid of dirt, impurities, or extraneous matter.

Basically there are 4 main areas of concern where the definition of  “clean” is in conflict with detergents:

  1. Fragrances  – are chemicals added to the clothe fibers to emit a scent.
  2. Dyes – adds a slight color to clothes enhancing the brightness.  According to the EPA, “Studies indicate that certain colorants may cause cancer or other adverse health effects in humans.”
  3. Enzymes – aids in the digestion of organic matter thus speeding up the cleaning process. However it may cause irritation of the skin, especially in the baby, when the enzyme have not completely washed off the clothes.
  4. Brighteners – FWAs acts almost as a “permanent” dye on the clothes.  It works by binding to the fibers of the cloths and reflects the blue portion of the light spectrum.  It is evident with the use of a UV lamp (black light) thus the flourescent blue glow.  This reflection of the blue light creates a masking effect ultimately making whites whiter and colors brighter.
