I know some of you moms are very environment and health conscious and I'm wondering what your take is on this new phthalate study they've come out with. I've used very little of the products listed on my child because she has very dry sensitive skin but I still have used them. Does anyone know any alternative products, say for washing hair, that are safer for use on babies and children? I have been using unscented, hypoallergenic soap on my daughter's hair but it doesn't really do a great job. I use olive oil and glaxalbase lotion to moisturize her skin. She's an unscented baby and she still smells great but I was considering putting a drop of lavender or lemon essential oil in her olive oil to scent it. I'm not sure how safe that is either.

Also, what kinds of containers do you use for storing water etc.?

I have been and will continue to use baby lotion/shampoo on my daughter. We've all grown up on these products, and we're still alive. Plus, the study said there is no evidence of long-term effects.
