I just bought a super cute Dr. Seuss diaper bag for my soon to be here first child. It says it's made of "all new material consisting of 100% polyurethane foam", and after doing some research I have found this material to be toxic due to the presence of flame retardants. The changing pad it came with is 100% polyethylene foam, which seems to be safe. Even though he won't be lying on the diaper bag, my concern is that the toxins could run off onto the things inside it. Is this diaper bag "safe" to use or should I purchase a different one?View Thread
