Get the lead out: Children's $$ pajamas

I just saw a notice in our CVS that they're recalling some kiddie sunglasses because of lead. In general, I think it's best to make your own kiddie products from unbleached muslin and cornhusks. Think you're avoiding lead by merely avoiding cheap crap? Think again!

That is just appalling. It is such a shame that so many children's products are so dangerous and we have no idea until after the fact.

Is buying organic clothing a reasonable option for those of us with no time or know how to make our own children's products?

Yes, it is, however my friend who makes the awesome GreenBabies line of clothes tells me that even organic clothes can, for e.g., be sprayed with pesticide inside the warehouse of something (i.e., it's still made out of the organic cotton)! And just because it's organic doesn't mean it doesn't have lead in it. Organic's better...but... So, buyer beware.
