After his four month shots, our son became allergic to Alimentum and is now on Neocate. He showed signs of regression and I began reading about autism. I found out about the dangerous chemicals in flame retardants that are by law required in all mattresses and clothes from 9 mths - 14 years. Now I am getting rid of everything that has flame retardants. I don't want my son to be exposed to more toxins - he is already very sensitive. So far, I have found 6 pairs of pajamas that say "tight fitting - not flame retardant". I read they do not have the flame retardant in them if they are labeled as "must be worn tight fitting"
Is anyone else aware of this and upset?! I am.
Where can I get some clothes my son can wear without making them myself?
I did find a mattress maker where I got a mattress with an RX so it did not have the flame retardant. I feel like if at least our son can be toxin free at night, that is a step in the right direction.
