Flame Resistant/Toxic things for our kids

My girls' Nana just arrived for a visit with two new sky-blue robes for my daughters. They were so excited ............until I checked the label and told them that Nana had to take them back. They were "flame resistant".

Nana called  up the company and complained. They said they had offered kids' robes without the retardant but there wasn't much demand for them.

And so I'm reminded many people still don't know about these toxic substances which will enter your child's body through his/her skin, and can stay in the body for years.
