Fate and force: or, Mr. Mudges liberty set in a true light: in answer to his sermon intitled, Liberty
A mom of 4 kids from Michigan, she is a Certified Stress Mastery Educator and member of the American Institute of Stress. The flammability of consumer products, such as toys and pajamas, is federally regulated. In the year 2000, about 300 burn incidents happened in children. Best to stick to natural, breathable fibers at bedtime. How Can Pajama Brands Satisfy Fire Resistant Legislation? I have trained myself that anything fuzzy and comfy looking is surely full of toxic flame-resistant chemicals, but something new is happening.
This has been a long and changing story over the years. Buy sweatshirts and sweatpants not intended for sleeping or long underwear. Toddlers and children are more often burned by a scalding or flames.
How many kids are struggling with learning disabilities? That does NOT make it safe! In the 20 or so years between this 1991 study and the genesis of flame retardants on pajamas, the cause of burn injuries changed as well, from matches and household heating sources to stoves. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1 through 14, after all types of accidents combined.
If a blister has formed, do not break it. I just found that out! How are Flame Retardant Chemicals in Pajamas Dangerous?
There are very strict standards for what pajama fabric must be able to withstand when it comes to a small open flame. From 2003 through 2005, the CPSC collected information on 475 child clothing-related burn injuries.
The harm in the 70s was from brominated tris, which could damage DNA, then chlorinated tris, which also was found to mutate DNA. This number has gone down since fire-resistant sleepwear legislation, but life has also changed, with fewer open flames for most children, including fewer parents smoking. If a company is worth their salt, they will assure you that they are not using flame-retardant chemicals.
Can you point me in the right direction from here? Anytime we make assumptions, we run the risk of making mistakes.
Cool the affected area with cold water or cold compresses until the pain is reduced or relieved.
explains that synthetics like polyester are considered fire-resistant because they melt rather than ignite.
