Freak Out! What you're doing wrong this week.



Whether it's your mother-in-law, best friend or the mailman, someone is always at hand to tell you exactly what it is you're doing wrong with your baby.

This week, you may just be a horrible parent exposing your baby to MOLD!

"Fisher-Price Newborn Rock`N Play Sleeper Recall: 800,000 Recliner Seats Recalled Due To Mold Risk"

Dear God, that's horrible! Those poor babies!


Let's explore a little further, shall we?

"Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame if the sleeper remains wet or is infrequently cleaned." 

...

Let me get this straight. 

If you leave plastic damp, and then wrap it up in a synthetic cover, you're telling me mold can grow in there?? MOLD?? On wet plastic surrounded by non-breathable synthetic fabric??

Get out of town!

And I just can't believe that when you don't clean things often enough, they might get moldy--that's crazy talk! 

"If mold is found, they are advised to immediately stop using the product and to contact Fisher-Price for cleaning instructions or further assistance."

Here are your cleaning instructions, no phone call necessary: clean your kids' stuff! Often! Possibly with bleach! And then dry it thoroughly!

And if you can't be bothered to clean your kids' stuff, quit calling Fisher Price to complain that their products aren't made of adamantium and completely indestructible.

"But Kristen," you say, "not a drop of a water has touched my RnP, and it's still moldy!"

And to that I say, what exactly do you think that humidifier you keep in baby's room is designed to do? That's right, add moisture to the air. So if it feels like a Florida summer in there, maybe turn it down a bit.
