What is there for the bath that doesn't contain phthalates and won't hold mold-spawning water but is still fun for DS?

Also, is there a link that I can show DH why it's not safe for DS to be chewing on his rubber ducks because of phthalates?

Thanks, mamas!

We like this boat. I saw a link (once upon a time that I don't have) that listed what brand toys had phthalate-free plastic toys. Sassy was on the list, so I don't worry so much about the Sassy bath tub toys.

My toddlers' absolute favorite bath toys are sea sponges. I bought several different sizes and shapes and they love them every time. They are still holding up a year later. Supposedly sea sponges are naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, etc. Not sure if that is true but I haven't noticed any yucky smells. I just squeeze them out really well and let them dry and they smell fresh when I take them down the next evening.

Blessed mama of four
