    im not sure but like u all that stuff makes me sick - even using simple shampoo as my usual one is horrid! but apparently avoiding cosmetics and perfumed products in the first trimester could reduce the risk of reproductive problems later in life for little boys and this all takes place between 8 - 12 weeks so it says avoid for ur first three months! no makeup and sick breath yummy :rofl:

    Really? Surely this is just one of them things that the 'scientists' think they can prove. Wasnt long ago when eating eggs causes cancer, or too much of this causes that, or using this could result in that. Sorry not being rude but the things they say these days :S!
    The amount of rubbish Iv heard latley, Apparently you cant use perfume incase your baby has an allergy to it, So does that mean I cant drink milk incase its lactose intolerant, cant eat pasta or bread incase it had a wheat allergy, Sorry but all this makes me mad, Shall we just wrap ourself in cottonwool and not move for the next 9 months lol!
    rant over ladies :)

    i think its ok to use as long as its not on your skin so maybe spray it on your clothes instead, although i am slightly sceptical and i used all of this stuff with my twin boys and feel i should do exactly what i did with my boys with this one so they all get the same chance, i know that probably sounds daft but hey i am pretty daft at the mo.

    :hug:

    I would really take this sort of thing with a pinch of salt. Scientists may report that they think they can find a link, but it's difficult to prove as we've used perfumes for hundreds of years. Anything these days can be linked to health problems so I would just be sensible rather than going OTT.

    I totally agree with ya darling , i just think its totally mad, To behonest i think docs and obs would tell you not to use perfurm . I have been using smellies thriugh my pregnancy and my scan showed a strong heart beat so i think people need to concentrate on the main thing like eating eeg and things like that and not to smoke and drink

    Its soo hard knowing what is right and what is wrong, we all try to our best when we know we have a little bean in there, but i am sure with all the dos and donts they are giving us dont they know stress is bad too lol. everyone should just do what they feel is right and reasonable or we will all be dithering wrecks.
    thanks for this post though it has been on my mind and its nice to know what everyone else thinks.

    :hug:
