enamel tubsThanks Provocativa for acknowledging my post. I have been away with no access to a computer. I have been vigilantly feeding him nutritious foods though he is very picky. He loves black strap molasses and whole yogurt. He is finicky with all fruits and vegetables but we are finding creative ways to get him to eat. Thanks for leading me to the healthy eating section on this site.
I went away with my baby while they worked on our apartment. My husband hired someone to test our apartment while we were away and he found a lot of lead in places including where the work was done. The bathtub read off the chart levels of lead but we haven't found any evidence of enamel posing a threat. Apparently HPD doesn't test tubs because they say that the tough surface can not be ingested and that the lead from the enamel does not leach out into the water. HPD is coming again on Saturday and we will have them test in the places where the other company found lead. The landlord does not have to fix anywhere other than where HPD orders him to.
We are here only for one night and are going to stay with my parents tomorrow. We will most likely end up moving. I am just worried that we will encounter this problem everywhere we go with a baby as active as ours. Anyway, he is having his third lead test tomorrow and I am praying that the numbers will go down.
