Trying to make us all paranoid? If so, it's worked! lol.

So basically I should stop my child from eating the bottom pull strap of my Marathon 70, huh?

I try to do what I can, but sometimes I just have wave the white flag. I'm going to pretend I didn't see this one. Smile

And, yes, those pull straps must taste mighty good, because E chews on hers all the time. Blech.

That's crazy, Evan loves to eat his. I have the Marathon 70, but neither one of those colors. Must mean mine is completely safe. Smile

Meh, you probably don't need to worry about what's in your carseat. Yes, those chemicals are super bad for you but they don't hurt you if you're sitting on them. Even chewing on it isn't going to do much. The only way for enough of it to get into your child's system is if its actually on fire and they inhale it. There are much higher concentrations of BFRS, PVCs & PCBs in our water supply! Wanna worry about something, worry about those.

I have the pretty red Marathon cover. :mrgreen:

It matches his red infant seat, red stroller, red ball....yeah, I like the color red.

Okay, let's not go in another direction that's going to freak me out. I already have DH working on getting the RO system back up and functioning (we have one but the line and filter need cleaned out).
