I'm Sure You've Heard

I must be honest, this is a boring but important post. You have probably already heard or read about this but I thought I will still share anyway... Just in case. 
It really only pertains to moms of children who wear pampers diapers. To everyone else.... Hang in there til tomorrow.
My kids wear pampers so when I heard about this the other day I started to read about it. Here is some literature on what the CPSC has investigated. If you need more info please Click Here

Fri, May 7, 2010(HealthDay News) -- Reports that new types of Pamper diapers can cause serious rashes are being investigated by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The agency decided to look into the issue after receiving a handful of complaints that babies and toddlers had suffered severe and persistent rashes and blisters that resemble chemical burns, the Associated Press reported.
The new versions of Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers, which were introduced to the United States in March, use Dry Max technology instead of the paper pulp used in older versions. Cincinnati-based Proctor and Gamble says the new diapers are safe.
"There is no evidence from the people that have called us -- or from the research that we have done -- that a single baby has experienced a skin safety issue as a result of our Pampers with Dry Max," the company said in a statement, the AP reported.
The CPSC investigation is in the early stages and wants parents to report any problems with the diapers. "We would like parents and caregivers to report to CPSC if they feel that their baby has been affected by this issue," he said. "It's so important for it to come directly to us," said CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson.
