I'm feeling overwhelmed. I have been paying careful attention to the foods we eat and the chemicals we put in and on our bodies, and I do everything I can to buy whole, natural foods even though we really don't have the money. Now I find out that our carseat probably has dangerously high levels of bromine in it. What the h***? I feel like we can not get away from toxics. I don't want my little girl getting sick from this stuff, or starting puberty at 8 years old.
I feel like people (my family) think I'm crazy for being so scared of this stuff - after all, why would they sell it if it wasn't safe, right? Right now, I feel very jaded and angry and scared because we can't seem to get away from it. BPA in our soup cans? How do I take my baby anywhere in a toxic carseat without feeling like I am causing her permanent danger?
Does anyone else feel like this? How do you cope on VERY little money (I can't just go out and buy a safer carseat)? Anyone just think I AM going overboard and just need to chill?
