I know we skipped Dear SafeMama this week but in the world of motherhood, it was a hellish week for all of us so we took a week off. We’ll be back with another edition next week as long as my potty training efforts don’t put me in the hospital twitching. Anyway, I thought today I’d share a few newsworthy items from some of the really great blogs I frequent.
- The Cleaner Plate Club: What’s Wrong With High Fructose Corn Syrup? I strive to avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup for a lot of different reasons but the author of The Cleaner Plate Club has an amusing take on her HFCS Peeve and reiterates why HFCS is something worthy of avoiding. Check out her blog for other funny and informational articles at cleanerplateclub.wordpress.com
- Z Recommends: Carter’s Tagless Clothing Causing Skin Irritations Turns out some people have reported skin irritations from Carter’s Tagless baby clothes and our good friends at Z Recs have taken it on and have spoken with Carter’s. Find out more information about the situation and share your experience with them if this has happened to you over at their website ZRecommends.com.
- FDA Issues Health Advisory on Infant Formula I know this isnt a blog but I do peruse the feeds on the sidebar as much as I can and when I spotted that announcement I had to point it out. The advisory is for any formula manufactured in China that is possibly contaminated with melamine. Read all about it here.
- $10 Off Seventh Generation Diapers on Drustore.com. I love this site Ecobunga.com. They have tons of great green deals and discount announcements. Anyone trying to adopt a greener lifestyle will tell you it isn’t the cheapest at times so this site is a great find for anyone looking to save a few bucks or score a freebie.
I also wanted to quickly welcome SafeMama Dierdre to our team! Dierdre is our newest addition and she has already jumped in with both feet so you’ll see some articles (and you probably already have!) from her as her time allows. She has experience with food allergies in kids so I know she’ll be a valuable asset to our site. Welcome Dierdre and thank you for contributing!
If you would like to join us and help keep kids safe, drop us a note through the contact page and let us know. We’d love to have you!
