another way to avoid actual work...

I have spent the last hour researching diaper ointment and baby lotion on skindeep.com. Sometimes I wish I was oblivious to all of the information that was out there. Everything readily available and affordable seems to cause things like:

Developmental/reproductive toxicity
Developmental/reproductive toxicity
Other concerns for ingredients used in this product: Neurotoxicity, Endocrine, disruption, Persistence and bioaccumulation, Organ system toxicity (non-reproductive),Miscellaneous, Irritation (skin, eyes, or lungs), Contamination concerns, Occupational hazards, Biochemical or cellular level changes


Things are rated from 1-10. 10 must just guaruntee that my poor child will someday die from cancer.

Don't even get me started on diapers. That is a whole other day of avoiding work.

We all grew up on this stuff, right? And we are all still living. Maybe we all have cancer, who knows. I read something somewhere about the fact that everyone we know will someday die from a cancer related illness. scary.


going back to oblivion. or maybe work. we'll see.


p.s. I am not sure whats up with the formatting of this post.... can't seem to fix it.


  1. Yeah I know how you feel. *I* would love to buy all organic(including body wash etc.) but Dom is against it. He thinks it is a waist of money. Because our parents didn't buy all organic for us and we're fine. And he says almost everything will give you cancer bleh.

    Have you checked out babysteals.com? I remember you posting about G diapers and they had those on sale there once.

  2. I'm with Bambino. If we could afford it, we'd do it too. Unfortunately, buying 200+ diapers a month is already expensive enough. We have had to purchase California Baby shampoo since Evan seems to have sensitive skin. In my opinion, I'd rather focus on making sure that Evan is getting organic and homemade foods so that way I can control what he's eating.

  3. yeah... I guess I just have to loosen up about it... because I am surely not rich!
