  • thats some pretty hardcore stuff... i don't know where you got your info from, but i have never heard that... and theres no way to stay away from it completely... as for the deo... ew? don't worry about it... the baby is protected inside of you, you really don't have to go through all these measures to put baby in a bubble... baby's already in one!
