Question by Lala:
My little baby has pink eye! How do I comfort him?
Oh Lord, I think my baby of just 5 months has conjunctivitis and at this hour I am only now seeing it since he just got up for his bottle. Tomorrow I need to go to the physician with him but what to do in the meantime? He is not sleeping well, crying a lot (and he does not cry unless very uncomfortable or very hungry) and I cannot get to sleep tonight. I am worried he may have some pain with that obvious discomfort. Besides the warm rag to remove the sticky stuff, what else can I do tonight? He is just a little baby. I think maybe he got it from my 3 y.o. who probably brought it home from school though he has no sign of it…. I am so worried about the baby.

Did you see this article about baby bottles? A Little Scary!?
What do you think? Will you be buying glass baby bottles or bottles free of the chemical?

Plastic bottle chemical may be harmful: agency

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A chemical in some plastic food and drink packaging including baby bottles may be tied to early puberty and prostate and breast cancer, the U.S. government said on Tuesday.
Based on draft findings by the National Toxicology Program, part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, senior congressional Democrats asked the Food and Drug Administration to reconsider its view that the chemical bisphenol A is safe in products for use by infants and children.
The chemical, also called BPA, is used in many baby bottles and the plastic lining of cans of infant formula.
The National Toxicology Program went further than previous U.S. government statements on possible health risks from BPA.
It said: “There is some concern for neural and behavioral effects in fetuses, infants and kids at current human exposures.” The findings expressed concern about exposure in these populations, “based on effects in the prostate gland, mammary gland, and an earlier age for puberty in females.”
Rep. John Dingell, a Michigan Democrat and chairman of the Home of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee, said the draft cast doubt on the FDA’s position that BPA was safe.
“I hope the FDA is willing to reconsider their position on BPA for the safety of our infants and children,” he said.
The National Toxicology Program said laboratory rodents exposed to BPA levels similar to human exposures developed precancerous lesions in the prostate and mammary glands, among other things.
“The possibility that bisphenol A may impact human development cannot be dismissed. More research is needed,” the bureau said.
Bisphenol A is used in the production of polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins and can be found in food and drink packaging as well as compact discs and some medical devices. Some dental sealants or composites contain it as well.
The National Toxicology Program expressed “negligible concern” that exposure of pregnant women to BPA causes fetal or neonatal death, birth defects or reduced birth weight and growth in babies. It also had “negligible concern” that exposure causes reproductive problems in adults.
The American Chemistry Council industry group said the conclusions confirmed that human exposure to bisphenol A is extremely low and noted no direct evidence that exposure adversely affects reproduction or development in humans.
In Canada, the Globe and Mail newspaper said the Canadian health ministry was ready to declare BPA a dangerous substance, making it the first regulatory body in the world to reach such a determination. The newspaper said the ministry could announce the decision as soon as Wednesday.
Environmental activists long have warned about health concerns regarding the chemical. They praised the draft findings of the National Toxicology Program, which cited more potential worries about the chemical than did a panel of experts that advised the program last year.
“NTP’s decision corrects the scientific record. It reflects a significant body of science showing that BPA may play a larger role than previously thought in a host of common health problems,” Anila Jacob of the Environmental Working Group said in a statement.

Question by Ice:
Questions to moms who are only exclusively expressing your breast milk to feed your little one.?
This question is for the first six months only when you feed your baby by expressing your breasts.
Have you came across any decrease to your milk supply that you had to alternative with formula? If so, how did that go about and for how long did you feed your little one formula? Also, if you used formula, did you use the already liquid guide or the powder kind where you mix it with water? Please explain.

Question by amosunknown:
Looking for a COMPLETE list of all recalled infant toys, I can only find little lists here and there.?
Is there some place on line where all of them have been listed from the onset of this hype until now?
All my sons toys are freak’n made in China… I think iam going to have to take them all away.
How do we know that the ones that havent been listed are safe? Maybe they just havent been tested or listed YET.
Beyond that, what toy companies actually make infant toys in the US? Are there really any? I havent found any…
Stupid freaking chinese. Hacking our defense personal and poisoning our children, theyre probably trying to weaken us for an invasion.. jeez.
