Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Is anyone stopping the use of Johnson&Johnson?

Sorry if this has been asked- I scrolled down & didn't see anything.

With all of the stuff going on with the fun chemicals in it, is anyone stopping the use of their products? What are you using now? If you weren't using, what do you use anyway?

We use it but mostly just because it was cheap and widely available and because it was just what we used lol. Now we would like to switch to something else.

Re: Is anyone stopping the use of Johnson&Johnson?

  • we were using it as they sent some home with us from the hospital. we stopped the day before the media frenzy bc lo was getting dry skin and the advice rn told us to just use water.  we have aveeno products from our registry to use but have heard good things about california baby products. they are just expensive.

  • I've always used the Aveeno line because all my kiddies had extremely sensitive skin with eczema and bad cradle cap.  The line doesn't have the known ingredients that the other shampoo does and works really well. It is quite a bit pricier though.

  • Just FYI, Aveeno is made by J&J.

  • nope.  if it's good enough for tons of major hospitals it's fine w/ me.  there are many other things i'm sure we all use daily that are just as big of a cancer risk.

  • We're still going to use it. I'm just not that paranoid.

     

    And yeah, Aveeno products are made by J&J and have the same "bad" ingredients according to the article I read, just fyi.

    So known carcinogens are ok with you? And you sound like you are cool with "many other things we use daily" being a cancer risk? So when you or your child gets cancer you won't be on your knees crying "why why why", you'll understand that it was your own laziness and refusal to accept facts that caused it?

  • We are stopping using J&J, I'm sure everything has something bad in it ... but I would feel guilty in the future for knowing what's in it, hearing the warnings, and just ignoring it. Anyway, we are using Burt's Bees products. More expensive, but we were gifted a lot off our registry so that helps. The diaper ointment they make is fabulous and you use so little, it lasts forever.

    wow. dramatic much?? if it was really that much of a risk why would all these hospitals carry it?  there are many things out there that are known carcinogens.  like alcohol, so i assume you don't drink at all.  also, salt...so i assume you are on a salt free diet.  what about coffee and your cell phone?? you must not use those either.  canned tomatoes? deodorant??   all i'm saying is that there might be a risk but there is risk in anything. driving in a car daily is much riskier!!

    Yes there are lots and lots of health hazards we encounter everyday. But when you learn about one, doesnt it make sense to find a safer alternative if possible?

    Also, salt? Really?

    Salt.  It?s also classified as a ?known carcinogen,? because foods that are high in salt have been linked to ovarian cancer and prostate cancer

    If  food is "high in salt" then its a processed food. In which case it is full of preservatives and dyes also. Salt is not a carcinogen.

     

  • Where have I been & how did I miss that report?

    We actually don't use any of their products because DD has bad excema & they all make her break out in a bad rash.

    We use Cetaphil Restroderm soap & lotion for her....

  • I am using California Baby products. We had a few free samples of J&J that I threw away after reading about the carcinogens.

    this!?!?

  • CA Baby.  A little goes a long way so the price is worth it to me. 

    LOL at the carcinogen discussion.  We all choose what poison we'll accept and not accept. We use CA Baby but give DD processed food and brush her teeth with the "bad" toothpaste. What one family chooses is not my business.

    Why is the price worth it to you? If you know and understand how bad processed foods are and you know your toothpaste is a bad one, why do you not choose something healthier? Is it harder?

    Like I said before I chose which products I want to be vigilant on.  I used to make DD's food but once she got past the pureed stage and was showing zero interest in what I cooked it was easier to make her mac n cheese or give her some graham crackers.  I still offer fresh fruit over canned and avoid sugar as much as possible but I would go looney trying to stay "all natural" all the way.

    Why would you go looney? Why do you think you are making a difference in your childs health by using a certain soap on her outsides, but putting processed junk food inside her body?

    Wow, who turned on your attack mode button today.  Haven't looked at your ticker so I'm going to assume you're a FTM.  You'll learn real quick that a lot of the things you held steadfast while pg and in these early stages will be questioned and compromised.  You'll also learn that unless it directly affects YOU it's just not worth it to get all high and mighty about it. 

    Anyways, it's been fun but I gotta to take my posion-laced daughter to preschool and then tend to my newborn who I'm also poisoning with my bad bad parenting.

    Yeah, I can see where choosing not to put toxins inside or outside my children makes me troll. Just because a lot of you are lazy uninformed parents doesnt mean that people who make better choices than you are "trolls".

     If I hear one more person make this argument I'll barf.  If the hospitals use it it must be safe! What about thalidomide?  

    We use CB or Dr Bronners.  Both are slightly more expensive on the face, but they are way less watered down, and the price difference is worth it to me.  But I'm one of those crazies who doesn't use deodorant with aluminum, uses non-conventional toothpaste, and spends more money for local and organic produce.  

    If you give a crap about what you put in your mouth, you should give a crap about what you put on your skin.  It goes directly into your bloodstream.
