Hi everyone,<br><br>
Thank you ahead of time for your help with this. I am still learning and it seems I am onto my plastics/pvc lesson...<br><br>
I was reading an article about the dangers of pvc (especially flame-retardant pvc) today and I freaked out, because my son (now 15 months) spent the first 7 months of his life sleeping on an inflatable bed with me. It's a long story, but it involves money problems, moving, and...e.t.c. I always had a thin quilted mattress pad over it with a sheet over that. Does PVC on inflatable mattresses offgas you think? I don't think they are flame retardant, so that makes me feel a bit better. Could I have been hurting him? I feel so guilty even though I had no choice at the time....<br><br>
(we now have a natural mattress <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">)<br><br>
Please make me feel better.....
