34 days to go! (baby carrier purchase decision)

I was quite convinced to buy ergo organic baby carrier and I was about to place an order via amazon.

Then I read this review on the item and learned that it was not truly an organic item. The carrier has EVA foam. I had to look up what EVA stood for.

Ethylene-vinyl acetate!

This material is toxic and has been banned in some of the european countries and it has potential cancer risks. (http://www.papalogic.com/fail-foam-puzzle-floor-mats-pulled-from-the-market-in-france-belgium/)

The reviewer mentions that Ergo baby legally didn’t have to disclose the fact that the foam was in there.

This foam is commonly found in kid’s floor mats and baby carrier’s bottom cushion.

I am currently considering organic fabric sling carriers.
